The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce (FCCC) and VOKA West-Flanders organized a lunch session “New trends in China sourcing: Evolution and Practical Tips” on October 21 at Voka in Kortrijk. Guest speaker was Mr Etienne Charlier, Managing Director, procurAsia.


The China industrial context has drastically changed over the last 10 years. The combination of higher manufacturing costs and a more developed industry has serious impact on sourcing.
In his presentation, Etienne Charlier presented this main evolution and highlighted the new strength of the country for companies looking for outsourcing manufacturing or sourcing parts and systems. He also gave practical advice and tips for people who want to learn more about how to evaluate Chinese partners, what product to source from China, and how to manage suppliers you buy from.
