6 Trends and patterns in offshoring in the European automotive industry

Peter Warda

 

Abstract

What are the positions and trends of the EU member states in the global integration of production? The patterns of shift in production are analyzed by means of an in-depth study of the European automotive industry. The focus is on outsourcing strategies performed as offshoring in production of physical goods.
