President Visits Samsung Plant in South Korea

 He is advocating for legislation to boost chip making.

A Samsung semiconductor plant was among the stops made by President Biden as he begins his trip to Asia. The stop is meant to demonstrate the growing cooperation between the United States and South Korea on technology and other issues.

The plant that the president toured is serving as the blueprint for a $17 billion facility the electronics company plans to open near Austin, Texas. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan says that investment will mean good-paying jobs for Americans and increased supply chain resilience.

The president used the tour to advocate for the final passage of a bill that the White House says will reduce costs for Americans and help ease inflation if congressional negotiators can reach a deal. The legislation is intended to boost chip production and guard against future interruptions to the supply chain.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president to seek God’s direction on the best avenues to support U.S. technology and manufacturing. 
  • For discernment for the president and his advisors as they focus on microchip production.
  • That members of Congress have insight as they consider legislation regarding the supply chain.
