Global division of labor has significantly changed over the past few decades when the large emerging economies notably China have increased their role in worlds industrial production. Prices of industrial goods relative to GDP prices of developed countries have been falling thereby pressing the price competitiveness of industrial-country- firms who have been looking for new competitive edge on the global market. This includes offshoring and outsourcing and moving to service provision. The Finnish mechanical and engineering industry has adapted to changing global competitive environment through major structural changes the firm and plant structures have changed as consequence of exits and major reallocation of resources from less productive to higher productive units.
