Question:

Discuss Haier localisation model in India and other markets, were they different? If so, why?

The strategy established by Haier to enter the Indian market differs to a great extent compared to others strategies for others markets.

Moreover, high level of taxation in both sales and imports in the production process obviously represented another main barrier that reduced profit margins of Haier and in contrary to others localisation strategies, Haier was forced to partly outsource their production process, which is against its own Three in One strategy fundamentals
