TSMC has secured a $6.6 billion subsidy from the U.S. Commerce Department.

TSMC (NYSE:TSM) has been awarded a $6.6 billion subsidy for advanced semiconductor production in Phoenix, Arizona by the U.S. Commerce Department. In addition, the U.S. Commerce Department awarded TSMC up to $5 billion in low-cost government loans.
