Singapore Tops World Safest Outsourcing Locations Ranking, While Kuala Lumpur……
According to The Black Book of Outsourcing 2009 which has just been published, Singapore tops the “Safest 25″ list, scoring slightly better than second place city, Dublin of Ireland. Click to enlarge.
At the same time, the report also reveals the 25 world riskiest locations for outsourcing. Bogota of Columbia tops the world worst list, while Bangkok of Thailand comes close as second. By the way, Kuala Lumpur, capital city of Malaysia, is at 4th place in the world worst list. Click to enlarge.
Out of the 25 world worst locations, 6 are cities from South East Asia. This is quite sad. Surprisingly, 8 cities from India are in the world worst list and none in the world safest list. Isn’t India one of the largest outsourcing industry countries?

Bernama of Malaysia had an article, 8 Indian Cities Among World’s Riskiest Offshoring Locations, which focuses on the Indian cities being in the world worst list. Ironically, it never mentions anything about Kuala Lumpur being 4th in the world worst list, a place worse than all of the Indian cities in the list.
