But how else do you start high-tech business? It won't grow organically in Brasil, the government role is essential...Kris

Foxconn has been facing the pressure of rising wages in China for a several years. Last year's wave of employee suicide has forced it to move plants to poorer region in China and eventually it may run out of place to move inside China.

I question whether Governments should bend over backwards to satisfy the demands of these big firms. Assembling parts alone should not be seen as a triumph but sourcing a percentage of components locally is a good thing. You need to have a legacy for when Foxconn goes to the next cheap place....

The logic is simple: you need geographical diversity if you are so big...plus you go after the lower cost option available in the world, the capital doesn't recognize international boundaries...Kris

Foxcon have been doing their manufacturing in China and have got used to the high quality of subsidiary support companies which provide crucial components and add to that the well oiled chinese export indutry, they would find it hard to get that level of comfort anywhere else, even US. While I dont understand the logic of going to Brazil the expanding business and closer geographic proximity to US would make it an interesting opportunity.

I'm rooting for Brazil. Of course I'm rooting for the U.S. too! There's enough creativity and business to go around, and all of outer space to explore.

If one is a pretty enough girl, one can ask for a large diamond on the ring.

This could be a huge PR booster if Brasil can pull it off...they have been trying hard to get on a high tech map of the world...Kris

I am not sure if Foxconn is justified in making crazy demands for tax breaks and other concession. May be for initial setup Brazilian government can give some tax concession but once its the plant is set Foxconn should pay taxes according to Brazil government rules.
