For the last 20 years, western companies invested heavily in China primarily along the coastal regions, capitalizing on low production costs, significant tax incentives for establishing manufacturing plants and the enormous domestic market potential. However, in recent years many of these financial advantages have diminished. How should firms diversify? Establish in neighboring regions or move to interior regions within China?
Asia-Pacific markets may just be the answer. Over the past five years, these markets benefited from strong economic growth and infrastructure development.
