25 Most Dangerous Cities For Outsourcing List Released.

In India on June 15, 2010 at 8:15 am

Speaking of bullshit lists that make news….

Citing violence, terrorism, and poor infrastructure and social improvements, the ‘Black Book Of Outsourcing’ lists these 25 cities as the most dangerous for outsourcing.

No points for guessing that Indian cities made the list. Come to think of it, EVERY city that might be an outsourcing hub in their respective country is on the list. And curiously not a single Western country features on it either. Obviously terrorism and violence don’t exist in Western countries.

And they go further to categorize the top 3 in each category as well.

  1. Bogota, Colombia
  2. Bangkok, Thailand
  3. Johannesburg, South Africa
  4. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  5. Kingston, Jamaica
  6. Delhi/Noida/Gurgaon, India
  7. Manila/Cebu/Makita, Philippines
  8. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  9. Mumbai, India
  10. Jerusalem, Israel
  11. Curitiba, Brazil
  12. Dalian, China
  13. Juarez, Mexico
  14. Brasilia, Brazil
  15. Chandigarh, India
  16. Colombo, Sri Lanka
  17. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
  18. Quezon City, Philippines
  19. Accra, Ghana
  20. Pune, India
  21. Chennai, India
  22. Hanoi, Vietnam
  23. Bangalore, India
  24. Hyderabad, India
  25. Kolkata, India
  1. I think that maybe the danger in outsourcing is relative, otherwise US and European companies would choose not to outsource anymore (and I know they still are). It’s also about being smart when choosing an outsource destination and partner.
