ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the evolving nature of outsourcing to China. Medical device suppliers first entered the Chinese market through direct export and distributorship. Over years, as the market expanded and access improved, more and more companies began to set up representative offices and a sales network in the coastal cities of China. When outsourcing in China, foreign suppliers should first consider the availability and quality of local partners. Other factors that need to be considered include market demand, size and growth rate of the market and technical capabilities of local competitors.
