offshoring

The relocation of an entire business process to a foreign country. The business process or function can be performed by the parent company or by a local third-party contractor. Offshoring is similar to outsourcing, but can be performed by a division or subsidiary of the offshoring company, as well as by a third-party entity. Note that offshoring can refer to either a manufacturing (production) process or a service process.
