Sourcing and Manufacturing in the Market Region [chapter]

David J. Newlands, Fawaz Baddar Al Hussan
2019 Purchasing and Supply Management [Working Title]  
It has been a common practice to transfer making goods to faraway low-laborcost countries. For many managers, this seemed to make commercial sense.  ...  The financial case analysis indicates overall profit that may be reduced due to labor cost; however, risk-free profit can be significantly higher.  ...  The focus should be on where the markets are rather than on the headquarters.  ...
