The project would include constructing “large-scale back-end semiconductors facilities unique in Europe,” the ministry said.

The Spanish government has said it would allocate up to €12 billion ($13 billion) from the European Union’s pandemic relief funds.

Before Broadcom, the Spanish government had shared Cisco Systems Inc’s CSCO plans to launch a new chip design center in the northeastern Spanish city of Barcelona.

The EU looks to bolster its chip industry like the U.S., triggered by a global crisis of semiconductors and supply chain bottlenecks.

Price Action: AVGO shares traded higher by 0.24% at $850.00 in the premarket on the last check Friday.
