India and the United States are joining forces to boost their capabilities in semiconductors and critical minerals, essential components for modern technology and defense. This strategic partnership, announced at a recent meeting in New Delhi, aims to bolster self-sufficiency and strengthen both nations' positions in the global tech landscape.

India is making a major push towards domestic chip production. Three recently approved semiconductor projects, totaling a whopping Rs 1.26 lakh crore, will see collaborations with industry giants like Taiwan's Powerchip and Japan's Renesas. These new fabs (fabrication units) will be a game-changer for India's electronics manufacturing sector.

Both countries acknowledge the importance of securing critical minerals like lithium and rare earths, vital for clean energy, telecom, and more. The plan includes co-investing in resource extraction projects in South America and Africa, ensuring a reliable and sustainable supply chain.

India and the US are committed to joint exploration and research programs to identify and assess critical mineral deposits. By working together, the Geological Survey of India and its US counterpart can enhance knowledge and expertise in this crucial area.

This India-US partnership in semiconductors and critical minerals signifies a new era of technological collaboration. With significant investments, joint research efforts, and a focus on securing resources, both nations are well-positioned to become leaders in the global tech industry. This alliance not only promises economic benefits but also underscores the strategic importance of technology and resources in today's world.
