Comprised of the semiconductor industry associations (SIAs) of the United States, Korea, Japan, Europe, China and Chinese Taipei, the goal of the WSC is to promote international cooperation in the semiconductor sector in order to facilitate the healthy growth of the industry from a long-term, global perspective. It also supports expanding the global market for information technology products and services and promoting fair competition, technological advancement, and sound environmental, health and safety practices.
