The article explores the impact of China's inflationary trend on investors in the Asia-Pacific region. Rising inflation is forcing Chinese manufacturers to try to defend their slim operating margins by raising prices for exported components, which, in turn, will compress multinational margins. Investors must avoid the large exporters of consumer products. Investors should lean toward countries that are net exporters of commodities rather than net importers like China. Investors are also advised to take a look at some export-oriented companies in India.
