Blog: Leonie BarrieHappy Holidays!

Leonie Barrie | 23 December 2003

The end of a year is always a time for reflection, a convenient point at which to assess the past 12 months and, of course, to look forward to key events looming on the horizon. It's fair to say that 2003 has been a time of immense change, from the devastating impact of SARS through to shut-downs, bankruptcies, relocations and rampant protectionism. And of course we're accelerating towards the end of quotas in 2005, a topic that has been at the top of the agenda for the past couple of years and threatens to reach fever pitch in 2004. As always, just-style will be here to provide the latest news on events as they unfold and a forum for the industry to vent its views. But until then both myself and the rest of the team will be taking a well-earned break. Our offices will be shut from from 24 December to 5 January inclusive, and until then we'd all like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support in 2003 and to wish all our readers a Happy Holiday!
