‘US and Netherlands to discuss China export halt for chip machine maker ASML’ – ICT news

It is expected that the Netherlands and the United States will consult again this month on a limitation of the delivery of chip machines by ASML to China. This is what the Bloomberg news agency reveals based on interviews with insiders.

The United States would like to further increase the pressure on the Netherlands to stop ASML exports to China, even if the sources do not expect a real agreement. For example, the Netherlands has previously voiced its concerns about stringent US bans on exports to China, especially in the field of chip technology, where ASML is a major player.

Currently, ASML is no longer authorized to sell its most advanced EUV machines to China. But these are becoming increasingly important for the firm based in Veldhoven. As a result, ASML recorded orders worth 8.9 billion euros in the third quarter of this year, of which 3.8 billion related to EUV machines.

Bilateral consultation

Sales of other products may continue, however, which means that ASML’s deliveries are less limited than those of its American competitors.

According to one of the insiders, there would be talk of a bilateral consultation addressing other subjects relating to technological partnerships between the United States and the Netherlands. Previously, sources had told Bloomberg that the United States would negotiate with the European Union to act jointly on sanctions against China.
