For the data and research offered on the Developing Country Sourcing site, 15 to 20 manufacturers with export experience were surveyed. The selection of suppliers is designed to reflect the composition of the industry in the country of coverage in terms of geographic location, materials used and range of products offered.

To obtain supplier information, Hinrich Foundation’s export consultants visited the facilities of each company and interviewed senior executives, who discussed their recent performance and provided forecasts for the next six to 12 months.

In each case, companies were required to answer specific questions designed to verify their manufacturing and export credentials, including a breakdown of exports by product type and market. Suppliers also participated in a survey aimed at providing insight into product and price trends, sales outlook, target markets and challenges.
