International Trade Policy
Intel public policy: How Intel promotes innovation worldwide
Intel is the largest United States (U.S.) semiconductor manufacturer and a world leader in computing innovation. Intel does about three-quarters of its advanced manufacturing and research and development (R&D) in the U.S. yet generates more than three-quarters of its revenue from outside the country. Semiconductors have been one of the top U.S. exports for many years and the focus of the escalating tensions between the U.S. and China.
Intel supports public policies to help open markets, ensure cross-border data flows and eliminate unnecessary regulations around the world for ICT products. Such policies would ensure that any consumer can access the best available products at market-based prices. Maintaining modern and easy-to-follow customs and trade procedures is highly important to major global supply chain participants like Intel. Our business activities span over 100 countries, with nearly 80% of sales taking place outside the United States. Intel heavily depends upon the ability to quickly move products across international borders cost-effectively and with minimal burdens.
