Chris Devonshire Ellis and his associates at Asia Briefing just published the Asia Sourcing Guide 2015, as described below:
In this issue of Asia Briefing, we explain how and why the Asian sourcing market is changing, compare wage overheads, and look at where certain types of products are being manufactured and exported. We discuss the impact of ASEAN’s Free Trade Agreements with China and India, and highlight the options available for establishing a sourcing model in three locations: Vietnam, China, and India. Finally, our Expert Commentary examines the differences in quality control in each of these markets.
It is a free download. As always it is well written and displays key numbers and comparisons in an easy-to-grasp manner.
Chris was nice enough to invite me to contribute an article that compares manufacturing&quality standards in China, ASEAN, and India. It can be downloaded here. I think it’s a good read!
