Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

As China moves away from being a manufacturing-driven economy to a more consumption and service driven model, traditional sourcing activities in China will evolve into a different category with new dimensions and focus.

This transition is expected to pose new challenges to sourcing managers and industry professionals around the world. In anticipation of these new challenges, Asia Perspective conducted a research project to understand the general consensus on how sourcing trends in China may change due to the transition. The project is based on a survey sent out in April 2018 to over 1,000 executives and purchasing managers of companies from over 30 different countries around the world.

We would like to share our findings to help leadership across procurement, supply chain and adjacent functions refine and successfully execute their business strategies in 2018 and beyond.

Best Regards,
Your SwissCham Team
