Chinese memory chip king's rapid growth, Musk's China challenges

The inside story on the Asia tech trends that matter, from Nikkei Asia and the Financial Times

Hi everyone, this is Lauly writing from the heat of Taipei. I'm sending this week's #techAsia from a traditional breakfast restaurant without air conditioning. It's across the street from one of iPhone assembler Foxconn's plants in New Taipei City, where I just attended an Apple component supplier's annual general meeting.

The AGM season has been a great chance to take the rising temperature of Taiwan's hundreds of tech suppliers as they grapple with world economic turmoil. My colleague Cheng Ting-Fang and I have attended dozens of such gatherings over the past month and we kept hearing one big fear: global economic slowdown stoked by inflation, Chinese COVID lockdowns and their aftermath, and war in Ukraine.
