TSMC, BioNTech in talks over vaccine purchase

The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (TSMC) stated on Sunday it is close to signing a contract with BioNTech SE over purchasing the vaccine the latter company developed with Pfizer Inc. to help the Republic of China acquire the jab.

"There are multiple parties. We are in the middle of the contract signing process. We will make announcements once the process is completed," the TSMC said.

Taiwan recently received a shipment of vaccines from the United States. Earlier, Taipeh accused China it is blocking its attempts to reach an agreement with Pfizer and BioNTech.
