The CEO of Intel told President Trump Wednesday afternoon that the high-tech firm is moving forward with plans to build a new $7 billion manufacturing plant in Arizona that will create at least 3,000 jobs. The CEO says the factory will employ about 3,000 workers directly - and 10,000 workers in Arizona in support of the factory. "That's why we support the Administration's policies to level the global playing field and make USA manufacturing competitive worldwide through new regulatory standards and investment policies". The completion of the factory, Krzanich said, would create the advanced semi-conductor chips. "We believe that we must be part of the conversation to voice our views on key issues such as immigration, H1B visas and other policies that are essential to innovation".

Three years later, Intel has announced that it will restart and finish construction of Fab 42. Intel spent $12.1 billion on R&D in 2015, making it the third largest R&D investor in the U.S. The company also invested $5.1 billion in capital expenditures in 2015, making it the U.S.'s largest technology investor.

Intel builds most of its chips in the U.S.at factories in Oregon, Arizona and New Mexico. "We know that American jobs are very important and that some companies will need to make decisions like this based on new policies from the White House". Intel's latest retrofit job was done in China, Moorhead said.

It's not clear when Intel planned to bring the Chandler facility online, but the company likely would have completed its investment at some point, said McGregor.

However, she is relieved to know that another family won't have to suffer the same fate now that Karina's killer is behind bars. Mr Vetrano usually accompanied his daughter on her daily jog, but had to stay at home due to a back injury.

Intel joined more than 100 companies to file a legal brief opposing Trump's January 27 executive order, which barred entrants to the United States from seven majority-Muslim countries. But Intel has now stopped making smartphone chips and is instead focusing on growth in the internet of things, server, automotive, and other markets. The chipmaker's CEO Brian Krzanich announced his company's newest initiative in a tasteful if traditional space with lavish gold curtains and a stately desk.

Krzanich acknowledged that "we've been working on this factory for several years" but "held off actually doing this investment until now".

Intel is largest US high-technology capital expenditure investor ($5.1 billion in the USA 2015) and its third largest investor in global R&D ($12.1 billion in 20151).
