Mexico joins the list of nations wanting to lure chipmakers


"Mexico is currently in the midst of a drought – as is US semiconductor boom state Arizona, incidentally – so if it does manage to move the needle on fabs, access to water for the liquid-hungry semiconductor process will need to be addressed."

So they don't have enough water, and even if they did, it wouldn't be drinkable. If they can't manage clean water, who thinks they can manage the clean rooms needed for chip manufacturing?
