Chaina MagazineTypically, I would not put a link to article I am quoted in, but this month I have 2 articles in the October edition of CHaINA.. and that warrants a post!

CHaINA is a local magazine started by Michael Pennington and supported by Shanghai Business Review and Supply Chain Council. The primary focus is supply chain/ logistics, however they are beginning to widen their scope to regional manufacturing locations as well (that is where I come in). With the support of SBR and Supply Chain, it is a great monthly read and I would suggest anyone in supply chain, investment, or manufacturing begin downloading their monthly editions at their website.

On page 32, Chris Horton (see the blog Go Kunming) writes the piece Tale of Two Cities to profile the growth (and understand their competitive advantages) of Chengdu and Chongqing, the hottest cities in the Southwest. Interviewed by Chris, I you will find some of my thoughts on the dynamics of the cities themselves, their strengths, as well as how they are working together to draw investment in. While the competitive nature is similar to SIP and TEDA, there is a lot of coordination between the two and each believes that their success is tied to the other (SIP and TEDA would differ on that point)

To learn more about my thoughts on Chengdu, Chongqing, and other regions issues, feel free to go to the regional page of All Roads

My second appearance in this months magazine is simply a syndication of the article Assess Your Risk, Plan, and THEN Outsource to China

While I hope you have already read and enjoyed the second piece, I also hope you will take the time to download the October edition of CHaINA. It will be well worth the time.

oh.. While I am at it feel free to see my comments on VAT in Cargo News Asia here

    Congrats on the two articles. I read them last week and wanted to drop you a line. Chaina is one the best new industry related magazines available.

    Thanks Splatty.

    Yeah, they have done a great job of getting China based experts to write. Something a lot of other publications tend to overlook.

    Hope all is well
