The diversification of the value chain is a very huge topic, connected to various questions, starting with: Do I want to produce or process a certain product myself or do I buy it? Often the question seems to be whether one emphasizes quality or affordability, but as we see in this webinar, it doesn’t have to be. The three speakers, experts from the Switzerland Global Enterprise network, pitch the advantages of moving production to Eastern European countries, such as the Czech Republic, Poland or Bulgaria, or Italy or Spain, respectively. Finally, Erick Lokhorst from Docucom AG presents his own company’s case study in Spain.
