Summary of news published in Week 40-2015


jpa4Sibil220TO EMPHASIZE the importance of the coverage of world news relating to the bodywear supply chain provided by SIBILintimate, the layout of our website’s home page was modified last week. Priority is now given to the daily posting of news and comments, while access to back copies of the newsletter is relegated to a secondary position. CEOs and other top executives of brands, and of their suppliers, can now access the latest news daily with a single click, rather than have to scroll down the page as in the past. This change provides yet another justification for bookmarking www.sibilintimate.com as a favourite on your computer. This is because no other source, either online or printed, provides a constant stream of news and comments that can help a company to elaborate a strategy or devise a project that promises profitable growth. It also serves as a reminder that SIBIL is an acronym of Strategic Information for Bodywear Industry Leaders.
