Onshoring: Is it a reality?

- "It is often suggested that there has been excessive offshoring, and that there will now be onshoring to OECD countries of industrial production formerly offshored to emerging countries. Some countries (France) provide aid to companies which onshore. Some companies may have problems with their offshored production: quality, response times, difficulties of supervision."
- "In this flash, we seek to ascertain whether, at the macroeconomic and not the anecdotal level, there are signs of onshoring in euro-zone countries, looking at employment, output, direct investment, market shares, the external balance, imports and production capacity. The answer is no: the trends in employment, output, direct investment and market share are not headed in the right direction; dependence on imports is not diminishing."
