I would be shocked if Intel dumped pollution into a river. When I was there Intel was very diligent about exceeding pollution standards. The reasoning was that long term it made good business sense, keeping from having a Love Canal sort of situation.

Average Monthly Wages for Manufacturing Workers in 2009: Indonesia=$129, Vietnam=$136, China=$412. For an India-to-Vietnam comparison, Bloomberg provided numbers for 2008 putting India at about 4/5ths the labor costs of Vietnam. Intel has facilities in India too; its largest non-manufacturing site is located in Bangalore. ---------- http://www.advisorperspectives.com/commentaries/aci_090710.php "Sources: J.P.

If they indeed dump garbage into river, the news doesn't sound to good. River will eventually bring the garbage into the ocean. The ocean will then carry it around to the rest of the world. Off-shoring is inevitable for the company to stay competitive and for the Americans to move on to something more advance which have much better potential to generate revenue. It's a good news to the company and to American.

Intel opens assembly and test in Vietnam because labor in Vietnam is very cheap. Also Intel can dump garbage for almost free with no charge. Many big company just dump garbage in river with little coruption money.

Intel is on a roll. First they announced expansion plans in the Portland, Oregon area (potentially creating many U.S. jobs) and now Vietnam. Good news for Intel and the local economies in these regions.

I think Intet's investment plans have nothing to do with creating jobs in the US. They have just made a few business decisions and I dont see any influence or bias in any of them. The assembly unit in Vietnam is a smart move. The 450-mm "readiness" seems unlikely.

Hi Andy. I know Intel is a global firm. Some of your assembly must be done offshore. But is this job creation in the U.S.?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
