Indeed, cost arbitrage between developed countries and most offshore destinations is significant. But this is not the only reason, or in some cases it is not even the most important reason for off-shoring.Despite a sharp rise…See More

    Posted by Varsha Chitale on September 16, 2014 at 12:16am 0 Comments
