I've been experiencing the same thing. In a couple of conversations over the past few weeks, including during the EDS trade show, individuals raved about Mexico. Not only is it easy to get to from the US, but the workforce and infrastructure are superior to many sites in Asia. In a way I was surprised, becuase all that stuff has been in the works for 20-odd years with the maquiladora program and NAFTA. It seems to me Mexico dropped off the map when China hit big, and now it is back on the radar again. Assuming they've been progressing during that 10-year "silent period," Mexico's offerings are no doubt close to state of the art by now.
Note to self: arrange trip to Mexico to see them first hand ;-)
"Executives most frequently said they moved operations to the United States (40 percent), China (28 percent) and Mexico (21 percent)."
This reminded me when I lived in Mexico, working closely in a B2B relationship in two of the biggest and most important industrial cities, Guadalajara and Monterrey. There, I had the opportunity to visit some of the factories, and see how things are done. It's not surprising that 21% of the manufacturing operations moved to Mexico.

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.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
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.
