30% salary increase in Shanghai
When I talk with management that are doing software development business in China they mention that they need to consider 30% salary increase every year to decide their pricing. Salary of the engineers in Shanghai is too close to the ones in some part of Japan and some of companies now make softwares outside Shanghai or north or south japan such as Sapporo, Okinawa and Kagoshima. Offshoring to China will make no sense in near suture for Japanese companies.
