Introduction

Please contact us for future project support, or to publish GUIDE Project Profiles for quick reference to more details than through this summary.  The function of this directory is to make it easier to know where major projects have been going, and who assisted them.

See also projects by location or for other industries.

Please inform us of any major new project announcements which should be added to this directory (>50 jobs created).  We welcome major project announcements, but only summarize and publish them selectively through this section.  This is not intended to be a comprehensive directory of all recent project announcements in the semiconductor, electronics, computer and telecommunications industries. We can suggest other service providers or resources for more comprehensive project tracking.
The column headings are explained below.  Detailed Project Profiles can be used by areas to highlight recent success stories for quick reference through our search process.

These summary descriptions of announced projects are for the convenience of executives and their advisors as they research potential business locations for future projects.  We also make it easy to search the archives of fDi magazine for project announcements and location information.
