Malaysia to increase efforts to address semiconductor backlog orders

Malaysia Semiconductor Industry Association (MSIA) president Datuk Seri Wong Siew Hai (pic) said as Malaysia plays a significant role in the global semiconductor supply chain, it is critical to expand the sector’s capacity in light of the severe global shortage of ICs.

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is doing its best to reduce the backlog of orders in the semiconductor industry due to the disruption of operations in the past 12 months, following the imposition of lockdowns to curb the Covid-19 pandemic.

The lockdowns saw many factories in Malaysia and other countries suspending their operations or operating in limited capacities.
