The most-read stories on just-style this week include a report on garment firms ramping up investments in Vietnam amid TPP talks, an analysis on why changes in China’s cotton policies are creating uncertainty, and an update on a garment worker wage strike in Cambodia. 

ANALYSIS: Garment firms set sights on Vietnam amid TPP talksProgress on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) continues to falter, with the latest talks coming to an end last week in Japan amid “considerable differences.” Yet many garment makers continue to ramp up their investments in Vietnam – one of the negotiating countries – despite ongoing uncertainties over the rules of origin issue.

ANALYSIS: Changes in China’s cotton policies create uncertaintyThe impact of recent changes to Chinese government policies on both the production and sale of raw cotton are continuing to cause uncertainty.

CAMBODIA: Wage strike by garment workers falls flatA planned strike by thousands of garment workers in Cambodia appears to have fizzled out after most returned to work days before the end of a proposed five-day stay-at-home stoppage.

CHINA: Adidas shoe supplier factory strike enters second weekWorkers striking at the Yue Yuen shoe factory in China have rejected management’s latest offer, pushing what has become the country’s largest worker strike in recent history into its second week.

ANALYSIS: Responsive supply chain key to Gap’s growth plansUS clothing giant Gap Inc has set its sights on growing operating margin beyond 13%, as it looks to gain a larger share of the US$1.4 trillion global apparel market. Key to this is building a more responsive supply chain, seamless inventory, international expansion, and omni-channel capabilities.
