Top U.S. diplomat in Taiwan stresses supply chain cooperation

Head of de facto embassy repeats 'rock solid' support amid China tensions

Sandra Oudkirk, director of the American Institute in Taiwan, says the U.S. recognizes the critical role that Taiwan plays in global supply chains.

TAIPEI -- The U.S. will work closely with Taiwan to build "resilient" and "safe" supply chains, Washington's top diplomat in Taipei said on Friday, as she also sought to ease concerns over a recent U.S. request for the island's chipmakers to hand over sensitive data.

Sandra Oudkirk, director of the American Institute in Taiwan -- Washington's de facto embassy on the self-governed island -- said the Biden administration recognizes the vital role that Taiwan plays in global supply chains, especially in critical technologies like semiconductors.
