Forbes has a special feature, “Where to Outsource Now,” which covers the same worn ground as other recent articles on the topic. A brief pop-up slideshow provides details about total exports, IT expertise, average annual salaries for programmers and BPO workers, and a factoid, such as this for The Phillipines: To encourage tech investments, the country gives tax breaks and promises smooth dealings with government.
The countries you\’d expect make an appearance:
- The Phillippines
- Czech Republic
- Poland and Hungary
I\’d have expected more from the magazine, but perhaps they figure the executives they\’re addressing have a short attention span and don\’t really want to get mired in the messy details. Pity.
