On Thursdays with Sharon Even, Sharon welcomes back Meghla Bhardwaj and Margaret Jolly to discuss the current updates when sourcing from India.
Since being last on the podcast, Meghla has relocated with her son (and dog) back to India, so she gives us an exact update of what manufacturing in India looks like now in 2020, and what industries are growing and have government backing too, Margaret gives an update on where shipping and supply chain in India is at, and together we discuss the importance of diversifying your sourcing in the current climate and why India can be a great option.
We also discuss the India Sourcing Trip coming up in October to learn more about it: https://www.indiasourcingtrip.com
