Why Should You Choose A Sourcing Agent in the Pacific Rim?
The countries on the edges of the Pacific Ocean, as well as some island nations are often referred to as the Rim. Pacific Rim China is included as part of this economic center. Other economic centers of the region include:
- Hong Kong

Outsourcing to China
When it comes to offshore outsourcing, Pacific Rim China has become a good economic choice. Shanghai is one of the countries’ most advanced cities, and although it is not the capital it has a larger population and is considered an attractive place to live.
It's also important to remain flexible in your sourcing and maintain some diversity. China is huge, with the Great Wall stretching to a longer distance than the distance between Los Angeles and New York City. That makes it a golden opportunity for those outsourcing to China to also take advantage of the market entry and accessibility of 1.3 billion consumers.
While lower costs seem to be the biggest drawing feature of doing business in China sourcing, there are other reasons to consider. In fact, other countries may boast lower operating costs. The features that remain attractive are the government incentives, reliability and continued speed in distribution and infrastructure development that has been growing over the years.
China is an admirable world leader in the production of consumer goods, making 25% of the world's toys, 30% of the world's handbags and luggage, and over 50% of the globe's microwaves and bicycles.
