Moving from China to India, Vietnam and Emerging Asia

As costs in China begin to rise, an increasing number of companies are looking at either relocating, or considering moving part of their facilities to lower cost markets in Asia. This makes sense, China as a consumer market is beginning to become wealthier, while the lower production costs available elsewhere make sense for supplying the global market.

In this special report we take a look at the operational costs of a typical factory in South China, and make comparisons between these are similar operations in India and Vietnam. We also take a look at Indochina – home to even cheaper labor, and additionally examine the legal and tax positions of China, India and Vietnam, looking at where future policies concerning attracting FDI are heading.

As this new century moves onto its second decade, it is apparent that the rise of China has spurred other regional economies forward. With that comes choice, and I hope that the contents within this report will enable the Asia based executive to begin to consider markets beyond that of China’s borders. The opportunities are there.

The Asia Comparator – 14 Cities Prices, Costs & Salary Levels

Using statistics researched by the global financial services firm UBS, we extrapolated and added additional figures to help analyze the major cities in Asia, including Bangkok, Beijing, Delhi, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Mumbai, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore and Taipei. For China, the numbers clearly demonstrated that the country is becoming more expensive for business, while lower cost centers in India and Southeast Asia are beginning to become more attractive. However, while the costs of operating in China are rising, so is the standard of living, and with it, the tremendous opportunities this increase in salaries will bring to both investors and the emerging consumer class.
