Comparing Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) to Mexico and BPO to India
in regard to the governing law and which is more favorable to American
companies attempting to outsource to these areas. Since the governing
law may be different depending upon the region, I would like to focus
on Nuevo León (due to its proximity to the U.S. border & location of
the Monterrey Institute of Technology) and the increasingly popular
Kolkata, West Bengal city of India. So the question is if you are a
U.S. company & you are choosing to either outsource to a new
outsourcing locale in India or increasingly popular Mexico, which
areas’ laws will be more favorable to your business? Areas of law
considered would be antitrust, tariffs, the World Trade Organization
and other multi-national trade agreements. As an extension, this paper
could look at both nations’ judicial record when it comes to
enforcement of these laws.
