'Made in USA' push is here to stay: Taiwan tech giant

Advantech, world's biggest industrial IT company, ready to expand in America

Chaney Ho, Advantech’s executive board director, said companies need to move at least some part of production to their major markets including the U.S. and India to counter protectionism.

TAIPEI -- Advantech, the world's top maker of industrial computers, regards President Donald Trump's trade war against Beijing as a wake-up call to rethink production strategy and expand its footprint in the U.S.

"We expect the trade frictions between the U.S. and China to stay for the next five to eight years, which after all drives a mega-trend that multinational companies need to rethink their sourcing strategy," Chaney Ho, executive director of the Taiwanese company's board, told the Nikkei Asian Review in an interview.
