In this article, the writer identifies how supply chain managers in China are adopting Western outsourcing practices in a wholesale fashion or modifying them to fit their unique needs. This study provides an overview of outsourcing and some of its common applications, followed by an assessment of outsourcing practices in China today. An analysis of current and future trends is then presented and followed by a summary of the research and salient findings in the conclusion. The writer concludes that it is likely that history will show that Western companies seeking strategic alliances with Chinese companies today will reap enormous benefits in the future as the Chinese people continue to demonstrate that they know how to make money and are willing to spend it on Western goods when they are available and are shown to be of superior quality.
