Today marked the Official Launch of Understand-China.com.  If you are reading this, you have already realized that the site is up and running, but we were excited to make the announcement nonetheless.  After more than nine months of ongoing development, twelve hundred hours of research and over 250 pages of detailed information, Understand-China is the leading authority on doing business in China.

The site is intended to assist business looking at investing in China by providing a one-stop resource for all of the information they need to be successful in China. The Understand China site breaks down pertinent manufacturing and investment information by major investment region. The site includes detailed information on Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Tianjin, Hong Kong and twenty other provinces, special economic zones and Chinese special administrative regions.

Is it time to leave China? 8/23/2010

A great article in the Wall Street Journal this morning titled “Southeast Asia Tries to Link Up to Compete”.  Like many others, the authors discuss the impact of rising wages in China.  What I found most interesting though, is that these authors brought up a good point that I have been sharing with our customers for months – the point that, despite these wage increases, China is still the best option for many companies sourcing goods from low cost regions.  I have chatted with tens of companies over the last few months about Vietnam, India, etc.  While these geographies do have very competitive labor rates, often significantly cheaper than China’s, they lack the infrastructure, skilled workforces, and production experience required to support robust supply chains.
