US enlists Quad to strengthen critical supply chains

White House outlines plan to curb dependence on China for chips and rare earths

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. will work with countries in the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue and the Group of Seven to address supply chain vulnerabilities for semiconductors and other strategic materials, according to a White House report published Tuesday.

American dependence on China for chips and other critical products has provoked mounting concern, especially as the countries compete globally. President Joe Biden aims to bolster domestic supply chains in cooperation with partners such as Quad members Japan, Australia and India, though it remains unclear whether Washington can secure enough funding for its ambitious plans.
