Global Sourcing Consulting Project

For your project, you will be launching a U.S. based consulting firm that will be advising a client on global sourcing strategy for the product line that it is developing.  To complete the project, you will need information about your target country: historical and cultural background, political and economic conditions, climate for trade, demographics, and machinery/technology availability for textile and apparel production.  You will also need information about your client company and the industry in which it operates.  The sources listed in this guide will help you find the information you need.
