(JW Insights) Jun 13 -- China Semiconductor Investment Alliance (CSIA) held its sixth annual member meeting on June 3 and delegates expressed both their concern and determination in facing the increasingly challenging state of the industry under geopolitical tensions and market downturn.

CSIA's meeting was held during the 2023 JiWei Semiconductor Summit (JWSS) in Xiamen City of southeastern China's Fujian Province on June 2-3.

Newly elected director general Chen Nanxiang attended and addressed the meeting. He called on member companies and professionals to prepare for prolonged geopolitical challenges and continue to work on protecting a global supply chain. Chen is currently also the chairman of Yangtze Memory Technology Corporation (YTMC长江存储) - China's leading memory IC maker.

Wei Jun, vice president of the National Integrated Circuit Industry Investment Fund (the Big Fund), assumed the position of deputy director general.

Lao Yao, founder and chairman of JW Insights, China's leading consulting company on semiconductor and ICT industries, continues to serve as secretary general of CSIA.

CSIA was established in 2017 through a joint initiative by JW Insights and the Big Fund. It has attracted members from over 100 investment institutions.

In his remark, Lao Yao said that the alliance's operations have become more standardized.

The alliance will focus on promoting more industry-capital collaboration and deeper integration of innovation, industry, funding, and talent chains.

Supported by CSIA's member companies, this year's Chip Power Demo resulted in a record-breaking number of project submissions. Over 140 projects registered, and nearly a hundred projects participated in the year-long online demos. The final of the demo awarded 20 innovative semiconductor startups, with their innovative projects covering the industry chain, including design, materials, equipment, EDA tools, and industrial software.
