Jack Ma's $200bln payments giant, Ant Group, is choosing to list closer to home. It's planned dual Shanghai Star board and Hong Kong IPO might also force it to practice better governance than others with primary listings elsewhere like NY-listed Alibaba and HK's Tencent. https://t.co/sKI9rMYQNm

Taiwanese TSMC's $12 billion factory in Arizona is tiny for the $250 billion company. Its modest aims tell the bigger story of how hard it’ll be to move high-tech manufacturing to America, says @mak_robyn https://t.co/rLJ5SJlxpz https://t.co/KfV6mbpqMy

To much fanfare, Taiwanese chipmaker TSMC unveiled plans to build a $12 bln factory in the U.S. today. Worth noting this was actually a risk factor cited in its latest annual report. https://t.co/6e5feuxUL2
