Five Best Practices for Buying in China

In order to be successful buying in China there are some key practices that are critical to drive good purchasing decisions. With a highly developed infrastructure and the most diverse availability of raw materials in Asia, China is likely to remain a primary manufacturing center for all types of products for years to come. This session will explore five of the best practices for buying in China from a seasoned supply manager with more than twenty years of on-the-ground buying experience in Asia. From how to find and qualify suppliers to defining specifications and total cost considerations to how to control quality, you’ll gain valuable insights into buying in the “world’s factory”.  A new section addressing the “Trump Effect” and a glimpse at other low cost countries to consider has been added also.
