Chip Shortage Is Focus of White House Meeting

WASHINGTON—Auto makers, technology companies and semiconductor producers met Thursday with Biden administration officials amid a global chip shortage, as the federal government pitched a program for companies to reveal more information about their supply chains.

The goal is to “understand and quantify where bottlenecks may exist,” the White House said in a statement after the meeting. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo asked business leaders to respond to the voluntary request for information in the next 45 days.
