Committee Meeting hosted by Colin Browne, New Apparel and Footwear Committee   Chair
Dear Committee Members,
As many of you are aware Andre Leroy will step down as the Chairman of the Apparel and Footwear Committee at the end of May. I would like to take this opportunity of thanking Andre for the amazing work he has done in leading the Committee. I have agreed to take over this role and I look forward to working with each of you.
I propose that now is the ideal time to review the focus and direction of the committee. As the Committee is industry led, I believe that it should focus on the issues that are important to the Apparel and Footwear community. I am also aware that we need to align our effort with the GAFTI organization, we now have two powerful industry groups and by working together we can achieve far more than we can alone.
My own vision for the Committee is for it to focus on Sourcing Strategy which to me includes:
a) Sourcing country analysis and reviews,
b) Duties and tax opportunities.
c) The role of Hong Kong as a sourcing hub
c) Automation and efficiencies
d) Direct to Consumer
e) Future supply chain
These are my thoughts but I would value your input. I would therefore like to convene a 'Strategy Meeting' on June 21st from 8:00 - 9:30am in the AmCham conference room.
I hope that you can find the time to join me, its an exciting time to be in sourcing and I believe that by working as a group we can make a significant difference to both the industry and also the communities in which we operate.
As seating is limited, it is essential to confirm your attendance in advance, by clicking on the 'Register" button at the top.
Looking forward to seeing you all.
