While Mexico acts as a supplier for US firms, China is the largest supplier to both US and European buyer firms. Mexican and Chinese firms are situated in their specific economic, social, and geo-political environments. The chapter enquires how national contexts have shaped firms' capabilities and their competitiveness as suppliers. It additionally explores how supplier firms view the relationships with their buyers.
