About this book

This book focuses on supply chain management in emerging markets. The authors present issues relating to supply chain development covering countries such as Brazil, China, the Czech Republic, Russia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Turkey, Egypt and South Africa and focuses on the challenges faced when the supply chain is designed and maintained. Such challenges derive from issues to do with risk, security, quality management and infrastructure among others. Case studies and survey results are presented in chapters which explore practical solutions to these issues. The latter will be of interest not only to local and international managers, but also to students who are interested in emerging economies. The book covers manufacturing, retail and food chains at the local and international levels.
