I just invented the word “sinofacture” yesterday.

It means to outsource manufacturing of something to China. I think it would sound good in a cyberpunk novel: “We needed to make it cheap, so we sinofactured the whole thing to a sprawling factory on the outskirts of the Shenzhen special economic zone.”

John Paul then pointed out an article in The Atlantic about sinofacture, though not calling it such.

Do a Google search for sinofacture and see what you get. Not much. Yet.
