UK’s Largest Chip Plant Staff Want to Keep China Owners – BBC

 

The UK’s largest chipmaker Newport Wafer Fab have urged the British government to allow it to stay under Chinese ownership, the BBC has reported.

A dozen members of staff said they were in “disbelief” at UK ministers ordering China’s Nexperia to sell its 86% stake in the plant and travelled to Westminister to protest against the decision, the report said, but the government has refused to disclose reasons for its decision.
