Offsets have emerged as an important factor in international defense and trade deals. In fact, Offsets are imposed by approximately 85% of the world’s countries. Offsets are broadly defined as industrial, commercial and/or political arrangements under which foreign suppliers implement specific projects that benefit the procuring country and are aimed to partially or fully offset the country’s procurement costs.
