China has established an investment fund aiming to boost development of the integrated circuit (IC) industry, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced on Tuesday.

The fund will invest in chip-making and boost industrial production in the sector as well as promote mergers and acquisitions, the ministry said in a statement on its website.

Investment will also cover chip design, equipment and raw materials, the statement said.

The investment fund will operate under a corporate system. Founders of the new company include China Development Bank Capital Co., Ltd., China Tobacco, China Mobile, E-Town Capital, and Guosheng Group, among others.
