Reuters details how Japan’s curbs on high-tech exports to South Korea could backfire

In an in-depth analysis, Reuters showed how Japan’s curbs on exports of high-tech materials to South Korea could backfire in the long run, eroding its dominance over a key link in the global chip supply chain. Japan tightened restrictions last month on exports of three chipmaking materials to South Korea, threatening to disrupt the global tech supply chain as it provides about 70% or more of the products to the world. But suppliers and experts say the restrictions are forcing manufacturers to look elsewhere.
