What's Riskiest Country to Source From?

According to a new report says the U.S. is the riskiest sourcing region. In an AMR Research survey, the U.S. was the top geography cited for supply chain risk at 35 percent, with China at 28 percent, and the Middle East and Africa at 12 percent. But despite ranking the U.S. as the riskiest region, more survey respondents are considering the U.S. as a sourcing region as expanding global sourcing has stretched many supply chains to their limits.
