San Diego, CA, July 09, 2018: TECHCET—the advisory services firm providing electronic materials information— announced that the 2018 Critical Materials Council (CMC) Seminar will be held in Ningbo, China in coordination with the IC Materials and Components Industry Technological Innovation Alliance (ICMtia) of China’s annual event. This will be a joint conference 2-day event, October 30-31, for registered attendees and members from both the ICMtia and CMC.

“We are very happy to be working with the ICMtia, who will be hosting the event in Ningbo, China, for the mutual benefit of both our member organizations,” said Lita Shon-Roy, TECHCET President and CEO. “IC fabrication is a global business based on global supply-chains, and our events will cover pre-competitive best-practices in ensuring quality, safety, and trace-ability in semiconductor fabrication materials.”

“We are excited that the CMC Seminar and private meeting will be located in Ningbo this year, and look forward to meeting the CMC Members,” commented Ingrid Shi, ICMtia Secretary General. “SMIC, China’s largest IC wafer foundry company, has committed to promoting the development of the IC industry supply-chain in Ningbo, less than 200 kilometers south of Shanghai on the coast.”

The first phase of construction to support IC manufacturing, including materials, parts, and other special projects is planned to be completed and put into use in 2018. Located in the Beilun Chaiqiao District of Ningbo, regions are divided into high-end manufacturing and production areas, R&D service complexes, and ecological and cultural areas. When including the Lingang Chemical District and the development of space on the south side of the region, the planned area can reach 35 square kilometers.
