FROM THE ARCHIVES
In October 2008 we chronicled the sometimes violent opposition to Tata Motors' new manufacturing plant in Singur, West Bengal, causing the company to take the plant to Gujarat instead. Now the chief opposer is chief minister of West Bengal, and she'd love it if one of the 100 companies in the $103-billion Tata Group would consider investing in her state. Apparently they're interested.
Tata Motors' Nano Twist is the latest twist on the "people's car" that started it all, made in Sanand, Gujarat, India.

"Why do I read Site Selection?"
"Founded in 1975 in Princeton, N.J., The Boyd Co. is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2015. Add a few years to 40 and that's how long I have been a reader of Site Selection — a best-in-class publication by far."
