NHK reported on a comment issued today by the South Korean Trade Ministry on Japan’s implementation starting in early July of enhanced regulations on three Korea-bound semiconductor materials. The Moon administration reportedly criticized the measure again by calling it “extremely restrictive” and pointing out that although Japan had said it would take three months or so to process requests for the export of such materials, exports of hydrogen fluoride fell to zero in August. It added that local businesses are already feeling the effects of the Japanese regulations.
