Global outsourcing is an important way to increase the comprehensive economic strength of a country and to enhance the competitiveness and brand recognition of global main-stream companies. Meanwhile, global outsourcing acts as a significant tool for multinational companies to reduce cost as well as operating risks. Harvard Business Review has long identified that "Outsourcing has been one of the most important management concepts and practices in the past 75 years". In less than 20 years of its existance, global outsourcing has been developing at astonishing speed and has become one of the most important topics attracting attention from governments and companies all over the world.

Nowadays, international economic cooperation has expanded its coverage from trade and investment to outsourcing, which is now of equal importance to both service providers and service buyers. Instead of being an unwilling move to squeeze cost, outsourcing is, in fact, a proactive move to deal with the quick changing international market—through outsourcing, service buyers can realize resource optimization, industrial chain integration and extraordinary development.

For developing countries, what requires special attention is that while putting a premium on providing service, they should also encourage mature domestic industries and companies to buy services. By fully integrating the two parties of outsourcing, the harmonious development of the service industry can be realized and service trade conflicts can be reduced. A dynamic combination of contracting and outsourcing, manufacturing outsourcing and service outsourcing will bring about revolutionary adjustment to business management and industrial integration, which will greatly promote the transformation of the global economy.
