Asia Sourcing Guide: 11 Top Alternatives to China [eBook]

Discover the next best sourcing location for your supply chain with our guide comparing 11 common manufacturing countries in Asia


Looking for the “next China” to manufacture your products?

China’s vast network of factories, developed infrastructure and other advantages have made sourcing goods overseas easy for importers of any size. But have you considered any other countries in Asia for your manufacturing operations?

There’s no time like the present to find alternative suppliers outside of China. China’s labor costs have been steadily rising over the past decade. Mounting tariffs have made trade relationships with China more tenuous.

And meanwhile, many surrounding countries in Asia have raised their production capabilities and developed other strengths to legitimately compete with China. 

Are you ready to start your next Asia sourcing project but aren’t sure where to begin? Or have you been manufacturing in China and are now ready to source elsewhere? Read on to learn how our free eBook, Asia Sourcing Guide: 11 Top Alternatives to China, can help.
