Well, companies have to decide themselves if it's worth taking up this "subsidy" or not. The amount they are getting has to be at least enough to cover what they could potentially lose in the long run, else it won't be worth it.

For those who has facilities in china, it may not be worth it for them.

Btw, it's impossible to stop SMIC to stop it's 14nm or even 7nm production. The only thing US can do is to ban the company from exporting it's chips to US.

I completely agree with this restriction since any country subsidizing an industry would expect not to have that money spent in another country so this is like the bare minimum companies should agree too. Although at this point, I feel like anything and everything the US is doing and could be doing is too little too late to stop SMIC or some other Chinese state owned enterprise.
