I work for a global manufacturer that uses several massive contract manufacturers around the globe to build their end products.

They don't have a manufacturer in China, but a lot of assembly components are sourced from there.

I think there's about 2 weeks worth of inventory before production halts. It's going to get quite interesting...

It's a shame India hasn't set up as a low cost alternative to China on mass manufacturing.

Unlike China, India is not a command economy so can't just set out to do something in the same way.

Do you a cheap pair of jeans though.

Tourism and exports are massively down in New Zealand and Australia. Timber, lamb, metals, milk. There’s nowhere for it to go...
