Blog: Leonie BarrieHave your say – Take part in just-style’s State of Sourcing survey

Leonie Barrie | 6 November 2017

The global apparel industry and its supply chain is going through a period of unprecedented change.

In the past year alone we’ve seen discussions move away from concerns over cost and ever-cheaper supply countries, and refocus instead on digitalisation, speed-to-market, emerging innovation in supply chains and what companies can do to remain competitive in a rapidly evolving marketplace.

On top of this, the future for global trade is uncertain at best. Not only is there an increasingly protectionist trade agenda in the United States, with the Trump administration potentially cancelling existing international agreements, but there’s also the possibility of the UK exiting the European Union with no formal trade deals in place.

Against this backdrop, how do you and your colleagues see the outlook for 2018? And what strategies are you likely to be turning to in the year ahead?

We’d like you to share your thoughts by taking part in just-style’s annual State of Sourcing survey. It will just take a few minutes of your time, and the results will be revealed on just-style in the weeks ahead.
