Trade Deflection

The movement of goods or components of goods from outside a trading arrangement to a country within such an arrangement in order for the seller to benefit from trading preferences.

For example Italy and France are part of a regional trade agreement, namely the European Union but Turkey is not. If a Turkish car manufacturing company XYZ is able to move its production to Italy and then export to France, then XYZ has participated in trade deflection.
