Hsinchu, Taiwan, April 15, 2016 - United Microelectronics Corporation (NYSE: UMC; TSE: 2303) ('UMC'), a leading global semiconductor foundry, today held its 2016 China Technology Forum at the Evergreen Laurel Hotel in Shanghai, China. UMC's forum theme this year is focused on the foundry's 'Innovation by Collaboration' business model that leverages strategic partnerships to realize accelerated, mutual success in areas such as R&D, IP, market development and bringing customer products to timely volume production.

UMC's CEO, Po Wen Yen, delivered the keynote speech. Other distinguished guest speakers included Dr. Wei Shaojun, vice chairman of China Semiconductor Industry Association and Li Ke, vice president of CCID Consulting Co.

CEO Yen said, 'While Moore's law still serves performance intensive applications such as data servers and advanced smart phones, other high-tech segments are experiencing explosive growth including automotive ICs, IOT, AR/VR, UAV, medical and robot/ These diverse vertical markets requires strong partnerships and comprehensive technologies in order to realize customized application specific solutions.'
