IP protection
iga recognizes the importance of IP protection for US companies doing business in Asia. It is therefore imperative that you choose the country, industrial-park, and particular manufacturer properly. Enforcing laws protecting IP is a pretty low priority in some Asian countries. To prevent IP infringement is not easy. Some companies ship sensitive parts to these countries for assembly rather than building the parts there from scratch. Others protect their IP by buying or building in the local operations. Since it depends on the product, country, manufacturer, and manufacturing procedure, iga can help you set up your own manufacturing facility and manage the progress and results.
