Recent years have seen remarkable changes in the nature of trade and foreign direct investment (FDI) flows.

Abstract

Recent years have seen remarkable changes in the nature of trade and foreign direct investment (FDI) flows. A keyword that is often used to summarize the multi-facet aspects of this transformation is ‘‘offshoring’’ which can be broadly defined as firms’ allocation of economic activities to another country, either by obtaining goods and services from unaffiliated foreign companies, or by investing in the creation of joint ventures or foreign affiliates (the latter being identified as ‘‘captive offshoring’’). Indeed, offshoring has stretched national boundaries and broadened firms’ perspective, making business an international issue. As a result, the international involvement of firms has increased over time, and multinational enterprises have become key players in this globalized modern scenario.
