SINGAPORE, 14August, 2012-- The Shared Services & Outsourcing Network (SSON),the largest and most established community of shared services and outsourcing professionals, today announced that the China Council for International Investment Promotion (CCIIP) through their web service is a supporting partner for the annual SSO Week China2012taking place at the Crowne Century Park Hotel in Shanghai, Chinaon 23-25 October 2012.

With global companies recognising the potential of utilizing China’s resources for back-office services, SSON has also seen a rise in the number of large domestic enterprises evaluating the opportunities that shared services and outsourcing can offer. However, deciding where and how to set up and sustain a shared service centre (SSC) in China is still a complex process.

Sarah Clayton, Global Strategy Director for SSON emphasized that combining the wealth of expertise from the speakers at SSO Week China with the information from CCIIP about various cities and resources available would only enhance the SSC strategy and decision-making process for many organisations.

Expecting to engage more than 200 shared services and outsourcing professionals from across China and the rest of the world, SSO Week China features over 35 speakers and more than 40 sessions on finance, human resources, IT and procurement strategy. Some of the shared services and outsourcing experts that will be presenting include Robert Li, Director GBS, Lenovo; Wang Cun Lin, GM HR SSC, Bao Steel; Janet McNally, Global Human Resource, Services Delivery Director, Unilever and Webster Shao, Senior Managing Director, Maersk Global Business Services China.

Providing further details about what to expect at SSO Week China, Sarah Ye, Asian Programme Director from SSON had this to say "The incredible amount of the positive feedback and success of two other SSON meetings in Suzhou and Dalian has made it clear that we had to launch an event which focused on the development strategies for both multinational organisations and state-owned enterprises. Not only does SSO Week China have 8 specially designed streams on critical industry issues but we have also introduced the SSON Excellence Awards – where we will be recognizing best practice in organizations across China. We also have incorporated the China 6 Sourcing Think Tank panel which will give practitioners an opportunity to see all the main solution providers side-by-side debating different strategies for growth and expansion."
