India's grip on offshoring eases ever so slightly
Your job could still go to Poland or the Philippines
India's dominance of the offshoring industry has eased ever so slightly, with Mumbai losing its position as the world's second-best place to outsource to Filipino capital Manila, according to the new Tholons 2014 Top 100 Outsourcing Destinations rankings report.
The news isn't all bad for India: it's still home to six of the world's ten best outsourcing cities. The Philippines has two entries in the top ten, which is rounded out by Poland's Kraków and Ireland's Dublin.
The big loser in the report seems to be Latin America, with several cities' rankings sliding. Brasilia, for example, has gone from 43rd place to 49th. Puerto Rico's San Juan is down 12 spots to 71st.
There's also bad news for the UK, with Leeds down eight spots to 90th. Egypt fared poorly for obvious reasons, but Romanian cities surged.
Poland has plenty to smile about with Warsaw climbing the rankings and Wroclaw surging ten places to 65th place. ®
