High Level Observations of those Serving the Med Device Industry
United States, Japan and Europe
• Continue to be the Global Design Centers and source of fundamental IP
Costa Rica and Malaysia
• Provide low cost, favorable tax policy, reasonable infrastructure and have low IP risk
Puerto Rico and Ireland
• Offer tax incentives and medium cost structure.
• Ireland maintaining pro-business support and tax policies/ P.R. uncertain tax policies of concern
Mexico
• Declining low cost attractiveness due to lack of govt. support, crime, instability / reforms underway but slow
Asia/ S.E. Asia
• Singapore offers progressive government policies, strong technical resources, favorable grant/tax policy and a medium
cost structure
• Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines offer low wages but variable business climates (policies, taxes, inflation rate, talent).
• Some MNC’s testing waters but infrastructure and educational base are weak…but improving
• Population and GDP growth make China & India attractive growth opportunities for MNCs….aggressive mfg. expansion
still questionable due to poor infrastructure (India), instability of govt. policies, IP risks, etc.
Perspective of Early Off Shore Activity
Singapore
• Earliest low cost destination in 1970’s / strong government support/ tax/ grants/ low wages/ Malaysia support
• Rising cost required altering strategy / focus on high tech, R&D, strong professional engagement / strong regional influence
w/ low cost industrial park complexes
Ireland
• Next low cost destination in 1970’s and 1980’s with strong government support/ tax/ grants / low wages/Singapore model
• Again, rising costs and internal financial difficulties forced change in strategy away from grants towards R&D investment
model/ maintained strong stable government support
Costa Rica
• Low cost, favorable tax structure, minimal government support programs / stable government
• Strong educational system, growing technical base of companies / Desire to grow and stay competitive
Mexico
• Pure low cost play with minimal government support/ infrastructure issues, crime, corruption continuing over decades
Puerto Rico
• Low cost & favorable tax policies initially / rising costs and changing government policies concerning to industry
Malaysia
• Low to Moderate cost but strong professional base with government some support / Continuing to grow in influence

  • 14. So, Who are Costa Rica’s Competitors? China •Low, but rising costs, poor government support & govt. bureaucracy , inconsistent and bureaucratic policies, strong professional base, difficult communications India • Well educated, low cost, but very poor infrastructure, lack of govt. support, inconsistent and changing policies Mexico • Low cost but poor infrastructure, crime, poor education Vietnam/ Thailand • Emerging, but with infrastructure issues, copying China policies/ significant lag to develop Malaysia • Strong education, government support, and large technical base/ reasonable cost structure Ireland • Strong technical base, cost much higher, strong infrastructure, stable govt. pro-business policies Puerto Rico • Strong technical base, cost much higher, poor infrastructure, policy changes of concern
  • 15. What Direction are they heading? China/ India: • Previously, China WAS low cost for Fortune 500 companies, but the low cost advantage is now disappearing due to changes in China society and economics • Little new manufacturing activity (particularly for medical devices) noted in India or China up to this point in time Latin and South America; Africa, Caribbean • Most other truly low cost future options entail significant risk in severely under- developed countries South Asia (Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore) • Particularly strong areas for future high tech and Med. Device support industries Costa Rica • Strong competitor, growing capability, but needs improved infrastructure Ireland • Strong competitor with pro-govt. policies, inflation moderated, but still needs some infrastructure improvements
  • 16. Let’s look at the biggest competitor - China Most Fortune 500 Companies are already in China…..is China the right strategy going forward for MNC’s Probably not! • Financial incentives not economically comparable w/ Ireland and Costa Rica • Uncertainty about future government regulatory and financial policies of concern • Costs are rising quickly/ double digit wage inflation, single digits in other locations • Competitive advantage compromised due to IP theft and lack of IP enforcement • Perception of ‘Made in China’ associated with substandard quality, potentially a competitive disadvantage in some export markets • Not all products can benefit from low labor rates (ie low volume + low labor content + high material cost) • Tech transfer costs for low volume products are unattractive due to negative NPVs • Regulatory hurdles are high and long driving poor NPV’s • Communications complex and difficult
  • 17. India is low cost, but…….. Still not considered viable for manufacturing! • Democracy, highly educated work force, but highly complex business practices • Government complexity, poor infrastructure, and inconsistent policies • Financial incentives are not economically comparable with Ireland and Costa Rica • Cost low, but similar to China, double digit wage inflation is forecasted • Uncertainty about future government regulatory and financial policies of concern • Communications complex and difficult
  • 18. Ireland remains a strong location for doing business Extremely strong base of manufacturing for high tech firms! • Democracy, pro- business practices, ease of doing business with government • Reasonable infrastructure, and very consistent policies • Costs are relatively high, but strong engineering and high volume operations moderate costs, plus ….. • government financial policies make it quite attractive. • Wage inflation is forecasted to be low because of countries financial difficulties • Highly educated work force • Communications very easy
  • 19. Vietnam & Thailand Extremely strong base of manufacturing for high tech firms! Favorable Conditions • Low labor rates • Some Management Resources • Some experienced Engineers • Good work ethic / quality Unfavorable Conditions • Poor infrastructure • Low unemployment • Copying China regulatory and business practices • Some/ Minimal financial incentives • Gov’t instability and corruption • Language barriers

Costa Rica - Summary Favorable Conditions l Excellent English / professionals l ~ U.S. time zones l Educated/motivated work force l Good work ethic / quality attitude l Good financial incentives l Under-employment – low wages l Working to become an Outsourcing leader in the region l Adequate infrastructure in cities Unfavorable Conditions l Adjacent to Honduras & Panama (drugs) l Poverty in rural areas l Inadequate infrastructure out of cities
  • 23. Let’s look at the decision process and Quantify Competiveness
  • 24. Country Selection Criteria – It’s not just about cost! Business Environment (Politics, Competitors, Corruption) Labor Climate (Availability, Skills, Literacy, Unions, Wages) Local Suppliers/Services (EtO Sterilization, Aux. Services) Logistics (Airports, Roads, Customs) Site-Specifics (Special Zones, Building/Land Costs, local taxes) Taxes and Incentives (Grants, Taxes, Transfer pricing) Duties / Tariffs (Cost, relations with govt. agencies) Utilities (Quality, availability, disposal costs) Start-up Issues (Time differences, transport. costs, perception) Long Term (Modeling of costs, direction of country policies) It’s Not Just about Cost! There are Many Factors to be Considered
  • 25. Nation · Political Stability · Corruption · Critical National Problems · Socio-economic Issues · Tax Structure - Corporate & Local taxes · IP Protection Labor Climate · Availability of IL & DL · General Literacy · Unionism or sympathy · Wage & Salary rates Local Services · Primary supplier availability · Secondary suppliers · EtO Sterilization · Competition Logistics · Airports – Seaports · Distance from Natick (miles) · Time difference from Natick · Access / Egress issues Site Specifics / Infrastructure · Tax advantages · Free Trade Zones · Colleges/Universities · Environmental Risks International Relations · Relations with BRIC nations · Relations with USA · Trade agreements favorable to USA business Language · Native language · Likelihood of English Utilities · Reliability Perception of “Made In …” · In USA · By others Long Range Low Cost Assessment - Soft Issues There is no simple formula or quantitative answer to how MNC’s make decision Very complex financial laws require strong legal/financial support
