What I think about Foxconn
Large company,

EMS companies I have worked with

The skills I often see lacking in the EMS industry today
The OEM - EMS relationship is just market opportunist and not partnership oriented, too much pricing oriented.

What I think about some of the emerging EMS markets or regions
India and Brazil are the two major emerging markets, but Europe will see major growth in the near future with the increase of the petrol and the Asian manufacturing cost.

What I think about low-cost manufacturing
Need to exist in order to satisfy consummer market.

One of my favorite quotes
Noting is impossible.
