President Defends Global Outsourcing
I have. You face a 70% import duty on IT equipment, plus months-long waits to clear customs. We even once had a machine torn open and trashed and the packaging shredded by Indian customs, who then sent it back to us through an agent in Hong Kong after three months. The whole time, our customer was asking us daily, "where the hell is it?" We didn't know because no one would tell us. Our shipper (UPS) just said it was in Indian customs.
Something tells me we're going to have much luck selling stuff to those 300 million middle-class Indians. It reminds me of the "billion-consumer" Chinese market we were all excited about twenty years ago.
