This paper focuses on “reshoring” strategies, conceptualized as the relocation of production earlier off-shored, independently of its governance mode (out-sourcing vs. in-sourcing). More specifically, we investigate two different forms of this phenomenon: the repatriation of manufacturing activities in the firm’s home market or in a country located at a shorter distance from the headquarter. We suggest that such phenomena may represent a significant “threat” or an “opportunity” for the economies of East Central Europe and Baltic Countries. Based on a wide-ranging literature review and findings derived from an extensive data collection, suggestions for policy makers and managers are provided.

Abstract

This paper focuses on “reshoring” strategies, conceptualized as the relocation of production earlier off-shored, independently of its governance mode (out-sourcing vs. in-sourcing). More specifically, we investigate two different forms of this phenomenon: the repatriation of manufacturing activities in the firm’s home market or in a country located at a shorter distance from the headquarter. We suggest that such phenomena may represent a significant “threat” or an “opportunity” for the economies of East Central Europe and Baltic Countries. Based on a wide-ranging literature review and findings derived from an extensive data collection, suggestions for policy makers and managers are provided.
