  Article Summary  
With China's recent falling stock market affecting other world and U.S. stock markets, it is prudent to look at how economic disruptions in China might affect you and your business.

This slowdown plus Chinese stock market volatility and other variables are combining to potentially put at risk delivery of raw materials and finished goods from Chinese suppliers.

Posed are five questions to help you determine if and to what degree your company might be vulnerable to Chinese supplier disruptions.
