Summary of news published during Week 36-2014

jpa4Sibil220SINCE last week, a new concept in presenting news of developments in the intimate apparel supply chain has been adopted by SIBILintimate. Now, news items are edited and published as and when they come to our attention, instead of all together once a week in the newsletter as in the past. The newsletter continues to be published on Mondays, however, also as in the past, with the traditional contents and presentation, but it now becomes a summary of all the news published during the preceding seven days. Consequently, readers who need to do so can benefit from the immediacy of online publishing to access news as rapidly as possible. Others, who value the broader vision of industry developments provided by a weekly publication, can continue to scan the newsletter as in the past. By providing the two options, we believe that we meet more effectively the different information needs of decision makers in the supply chain.
