According to new reports, Taiwan’s largest semiconductor foundry is now seriously considering setting up a fab in Dresden, Germany.

The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) makes 58% of the world’s semiconductor ships.

Dresden is known as Silicon Saxony as it has the highest concentration of semiconductor companies in Europe. Bosch, NXP, GF, and Infineon have set up factories there.

Germany’s economics ministry declined to comment on the rumored plan but pledged subsidies for any such projects by foreign semiconductor firms.

In March, Intel announced that it would set up a fab in Magdeburg with an initial investment of €17 billion.
