The European Union (EU) is one of the origins of the global semiconductor industry, but due to its structural defects in the semiconductor value chain, it has encountered a crisis of chip shortages and supply cuts since 2021. The European Chips Act drafted by EU proposes a path for semiconductor ecological construction, crisis intervention regulatory measures, and outlines a blueprint for a "national system for the chip industry with EU characteristics". These factors are of speculative significance and reference value for China to balance the relationship between the government and the market, subsidies and competition, key construction and inclusive support in the process of highintensity investment and supply chain construction in the field of semiconductor chips.
