What should be your sourcing strategy for India? Day-2`s first panel 1st panel discussion promises to be an eye opener for brands and retailers

Are you still wondering what should be right balance of domestic and global sourcing? Then Sourcing Shake Up - Sourcing strategy for Indian & International retailers and brands in India is where you should be.
After addressing other pertinent issues related to Indian fashion retail, Day-2 of Apparel Sourcing Week (ASW) 2019 would kick-start the final day of the event with an exciting panel discussion titled Sourcing Shake Up - Sourcing strategy for Indian & International retailers and brands in India between 11:15am – 12:10pm on March 16.
If India’s booming retail sector and emerging opportunities today are one of the most talked about topics so is the issue of hammering out a feasible and efficient sourcing strategy. If by sourcing locally, an international brand can take several advantages such as saving on import duty, shortening the supply chain, then why not take it up? Importing of products provides certain advantages especially on key products. While local sourcing is not just cost competitive it also helps shorten the supply chain and increases speed to market. Today, when everyone is talking about fast-fashion and quick response time, it is becoming imperative for these brands to develop an efficient supply chain with shorter lead times, preferably in the domestic markets.
