Ann, you are right. India has all the resources including talents, resources and raw materials. We are lagging only in infrastructure and now the Government is trying to build up the infra from scratch. Once it’s get ready, I don’t think any investors would refuse to invest. We have that hope and looking for the flourished greenery.
Like you mentioned Toms, considering all the challenges and possible hick ups, if the India government is able to effectively shape the basic infractructure and it's clear that with further future plans, its able to continue the development of these infrastructure to ensure the system is working, no investor would refuse to get involved in the development of the electronic semiconductor manufacturing sector in India. There's pool of talents, resources, raw materials - why not? I would like to see India get involved and develop it to full blown workable industry.China is, why not India too.
Himanshugupta, thanks for sharing the info. I had already included these details in my previous blogs. A similar movement from government side happens in 2005 and 2007, but both reports are still in papers. Hope this time; it would be in a working model
Nemom, it’s not political. When it comes for development issues, democracy has its own limitations. Democracy means by the people and for the people, so the priority goes to citizens welfare rather than industrialization or commercialization. Even if government has vision and policies, then also it may not be happens in democratic situations. But in china the situation is entirely different and government is the sole authority to decide and implementing the decisions.
Kunmi , that’s the real thing happened. Due to various other challenges and issues, government didn’t realize that semiconductor as one of the key area for investment. Initially government much focused on IT/BPO sector for investment and infra. But after recession, government started the diversification of attention to other sectors like semiconductor, automobiles etc. Yes India has lots of potential in semiconductor growth and marketing ,due to its vast internal market.
adeniji, surely India will be in semiconductor manufacturing sector, within a couple of years. India has both pools of talented manpower and vast internal market, which is growing day by day. Once the infrastructure is ready, hope investments will happens in fab area also. I think now it’s only the startup problem and will be in full gear within a couple of years.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
