China has been on a drive to develop into extra self-reliant in semiconductors, a transfer that has accelerated in the past few years as tensions with the U.S. rose. SMIC is essential to China’s ambitions.

Nevertheless, Washington has sought to make it tougher for China’s business to catch up. In September, the U.S. reportedly imposed sanctions on SMIC that made it tougher for it to accumulate the American expertise that it wants. This month, SMIC was added to the U.S. blacklist of alleged Chinese military companies.

SMIC’s Hong Kong-listed shares had been down 4% at round 2:59 p.m. native time. The corporate’s Shanghai-listed shares had been round 5.5% decrease.
