The ' R ' Factor

While the attractiveness of an offshore location is usually measured by the availability of manpower, skills, business environment and cost, political and economic risks are often not taken into account while choosing an offshore location. Risk management firm Aon’s political and economic risk map for 2006, gives an interesting insight into the risk profile of a location.

Interestingly, most of the tier 1offshore locations – India, China, Russia, and Mexico – are labeled medium risk locations.

And some Low Risk Locations : Czech Republic, Slovakia, Chile
