Abstract

This article focuses on sourcing activities conducted by foreign small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the Chinese market. It asks whether there are any differences between global players and SMEs when it comes to sourcing in China. The characteristics of the Chinese market and the opportunities and challenges involved in sourcing products or services in China are analysed. In order to guarantee a successful business operation, companies have to design specific sourcing strategies of their own.
