View Full Version : Chinese Threat
March 29th, 2001, 12:55 AM
How all of you at Echarcha feel the latest threat of china becoming a competitor in IT. I was going through some news papers & came to know that an avg chinese developer in china costs $12k , where as avg indian costs 20K. so we lose on cost competitiveness & then other things like infrastructure, stress on english coachin
etc.. were mentioned. Initially I wasnt bothered, but i have come across a no such articles.
My personal opinion is that we are ahead of these guys, but we indians become complacent very fast? These chinks are real smart stuff, they do anything to drop down the prices by fair or unfair means & once they have the market, they start moving it up
What do you feel should be our strategy to maintain our competitive advantage

"Can I have flied lice?"
Waiter: "That is called fried rice, you plick"
