U.S. can rejuvenate manufacturing -- and here's how, federal official says
Exporting goods made in the United States may be the saving grace for U.S. manufacturers, says Jay Williams, the country's assistant secretary of commerce for economic development. So the Obama administration still has some work to do to create a level playing field for U.S. exporters, Williams said Wednesday in Concord. "The president realizes that previous trade agreements didn't live up to the hype," Williams says. "They left too much wiggle room." Charlotte Business Journal

Oil Bust Empties Out Private-Jet Parking Lot in Texas
(Bloomberg) -- The oil boom last year was easy to see at the airport in Midland, Texas, the gateway to the biggest crude-producing region in the U.S. The 30 or so spaces for private planes were often filled. On one day in early February, a lone corporate jet sat on the tarmac, the empty spots a harbinger of the slowdown looming in a city that is 85 percent dependent on the oil and gas industry. In petroleum capitals such as Midland, a place long known for swaggering wildcatters who made and lost fortunes, corporate and personal jet travel has been a bellwether for the health of the energy business. That indicator took a turn down in January, when private-aircraft flights to Midland dropped about 9 percent, amid the global rout in crude prices. Bloomberg

Jaguar Land Rover 'is indeed looking' at N.A. plant, Tata says
GREENVILLE, S.C. -- British luxury maker Jaguar Land Rover Group is considering a North American auto plant to keep up with growing world demand for luxury vehicles. News of the possible expansion -- confirmed here Tuesday by Tata Motors Chairman Emeritus Ratan Tata -- comes seven years after the British brands were shed by Ford Motor Co. Tata led his Indian company’s 2008 acquisition of the luxury marques from the U.S. automaker. “The company is indeed looking at North America as a location for another plant,” Tata told the South Carolina Automotive Summit. “Where they locate that plant, in which country or which state they locate, is something they will need to decide.” Automotive News

 Top Ten Places in the South for Relocating California Companies

Just look around at what's happening in the aerospace industry in the American South. Aerospace is really making a move to become one of the region's top two industry sectors. It’s not there yet, but if large project counts are any indication, aerospace may soon challenge the petrochemicals sector as the second largest industry in the region. Never before has the aerospace industry been so important to the South's economy. Oh, what's the No. 1 industry sector in the South? Automotive is, of course. That industry hasn't been challenged much for 25 years in this region, or since we’ve been counting.

This is our annual "Made in the South" issue and it's timely because there is a new player in the South's manufacturing universe. For almost two decades, economic developers and politicos in the South and the U.S. have been chasing Chinese projects with little or nothing to show. Want proof we've been chasing ghosts in China for years? Okay, go ahead and name a Chinese brand that's made in the South? Tick. . .tick. . .tick. Give up?

If you have ever seen one of my presentations, then you know about the word "reshoring" and how that phenomenon has lifted the spirits of even the most skeptical Southerners regarding the future of the region's economy. After all, in the last four decades, manufacturing has suffered a bloodletting never before seen in U.S. history. The biggest factor behind the slow and long meltdown that began in the 1990s was the herd mentality to offshore manufacturing capacity to cheaper locales, primarily by U.S.-owned companies.
