Outsource to China

China has recently emerged as one of the favored locations for business process outsourcing. This is of course due to its huge, well-educated human resources with rapidly improving English skills. In addition, the Chinese government has gone all out in support of the BPO industry with attractive tax and other financial incentives as well as the development of 10 outsourcing bases or zones where infrastructure and other support can be focused.

Various companies have already outsourced to China. Improvements in scale, capability and overall amount has put China among the top locations for outsourcing. Other popular outsourcing countries such as India and the Philippines already work hand-in-hand with Chinese companies to provide them with additional support for major tasks.

China's Ministry of Commerce continues to support this outsourcing venture. As more international businesses penetrate China's booming market, expect outsourcing to become a key service from this country.
