    Yesterday, October 19, Samsung Executive Chairman Lee Jae-yong visited the construction site of the next-generation semiconductor R&D complex at the Giheung campus in South Korea.

    Samsung to invest $15 billion in the new R&D complex

    The Korean tech giant announced its plans to construct a new R&D complex for semiconductors last year. Its location: the Giheung Campus in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province.

    Despite the recent hurdles faced by the semiconductor market due to economic uncertainties, which led to low demand for chips, Samsung is playing the long-term plan and intends to double the size of the semiconductor research institute “in terms of quality and quantity.”

    To achieve this, Samsung plans to invest 20 trillion won ($15 billion) in the new large-scale next-gen R&D complex by 2030. The complex will serve the company's semiconductor research, production, and distribution needs.
