Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy Moon Sung-wook said, “Efforts to stabilize the semiconductor supply chain through global partnership need to be reinforced, and Korea and the United States will hold discussions on Korean-U.S. semiconductor partnerships to implement actual bilateral semiconductor collaboration projects.”

MOTIE Minister Moon made the remarks at a ceremony to mark the 14th Semiconductor Day anniversary and the 30th anniversary of the Korea Semiconductor Industry Association (KSIA) at COEX in Samseong-dong, Seoul, on Nov. 22. 

Minister Moon said, “I extend thanks to our semiconductor industry which has played a part of a strong buttress to our economy despite uncertainties of the supply chains, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.” 

Moon stressed organic cooperation between the private and the public sectors to cope with a move to restructure the global supply chains.

Minister Moon said the building of the K-semiconductor belt is realized fast like the completion of a contract on the site of a 240 billion won repair and training center of ASML monopolizing ultraviolet (EUV) lithography equipment. 

He said the government will aggressively support the private sector’s investments by implementing K-semiconductor strategies without interruption, announced in May to build the world’s top-tier semiconductor supply chains. Moon also emphasized the need for nurturing manpower to make the semiconductor industry grow. 

The private and public sectors should make joint investments to nurture 35,000 people with doctorate and master’s degrees and create major college courses and ones for educating employees.

KSIA Chairman Lee Jung-bae, concurrently president of Samsung Electronics, said, “KSIA, established in 1991, has grown along with the Korean semiconductor industry for the past 30 years.” 

Lee said KSIA will implement future semiconductor development strategies to make Korea the global No. 1 semiconductor powerhouse. 

Fifty-two people were honored with orders and other government prizes in recognition for their contribution to the development of the Korean semiconductor industry. 

This year saw 52 prize winners, the highest-ever number. The top honor has been leveled up from the Order of Industrial Service, Silver Tower to the Order of Industrial Service, Gold Tower. 

This year’s coveted prize went to Lee Jung-bae, president of Samsung Electronics for his contribution to mass producing the world’s top-tier mobile and server DRAMs. 

President Choi Myoung-bae of YIKC was awarded with the Order of Industrial Service, Silver Tower for localizing the nation’s first memory testing equipment to lead the nation’s semiconductor equipment exports. 

President Lee Hyun-duk of Wonik IPS, Senior Executive Vice President Lee Sung-jae of SK Hynix and Senior Executive Vice President Lee Sang-ki of DB Hitek were honored with the Industrial Service Medal.

President Kwon Won-taek of KCTECH, Senior Executive Vice President Ahn Jung-hoon of SK Siltron and Senior Executive Vice President Lee Tae-kyung of Eo Technics were awarded with the presidential prize while Vice President Ko Dae-hyup of LX Semicon, Executive Vice President Park Sang-jong of PSK and Executive Vice President Shin Dong-young of FST and President Im Tae-joon of Versum Materials HYT were presented with the prime minister’s award.
