TOKYO -- Intel will deepen its cooperation with Japanese companies and research institutes to develop technologies and materials for semiconductor manufacturing, the U.S. chipmaker's CEO told Nikkei in an interview on Thursday.

Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger was in Tokyo for talks with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in the morning. In a subsequent interview with Nikkei, he revealed he had indicated to Kishida three areas where Intel could cooperate with Japan and Japanese suppliers: driving sustainable semiconductor manufacturing, developing exascale and quantum computing, and enhancing the manufacturing ecosystem from infrastructure to packaging, assembly and testing to "have Japan [continue] to be a leader in that area."
