China Sourcing 2010 – The China Connection = Setting Up Manufacturing & Supply Chains
Michael S. Chester, CPIM, CIRM, President, International Manufacturing Consultants

The dragon has awoken. Whether as contract manufacturers, joint venture partners, or wholly owned operating companies, Chinese enterprises are increasingly becoming key, integral standard components of Corporate America’s supply chains.

Mr. Chester will show how an understanding of Chinese culture and business practices leads to a more successful relationship with Chinese enterprises. The options for and processes of setting up manufacturing and supply chains will be explained. Pointers, risk factors, and safeguards at all stages from identifying potential partners through negotiating and closing deals and ensuring profitable operations will be given. Real examples from Mr. Chester’s 20 years’ experience helping companies set up operations in China will be given. Mr. Chester will also discuss how the recent economic downturn (and now the upturn) has affected the trend to outsource in China.
