Your China Plus One strategy should include Vietnam

Finding a trusted partner in Vietnam for your China Plus One Vietnam Strategy

The definition of China Plus One or China +1 is an international business strategy that consists of the expansion of your company’s current operations in China, say, to a Southeast Asian nation like Vietnam.

Your company might even consider leaving China as a list of growing concerns about China mounts: shortages of workers, appreciating currency, restrictive government policies, inflation and even the possibility of widespread civic disputes.

Most importantly, in regards to low cost manufacturing, the main reason you choose China in the first place: wages were low. However, wages have been rising in China approximately 25 percent a year in many industries, possibly your industry too.

There are also growing concern of China’s manufacturing dominance in many industrial sectors that could see the placement of export limits, in certain trading regions, imposed on your Chinese-made products and exports.

So, the idea of adding secondary operations outside China, avoiding the risky fluctuations of China’s labour and resources market, is a sound business decision.

China may not appear as a bargain as of 2012…. there are alternatives.
