Producer Association Initiative Agrees to Focus on Commercial Compliance to Improve Purchasing Practices

The Manufacturers Payment and Delivery Terms Initiative has taken an important step yesterday, concluding its phase 1 during its second Global Working Group Meeting.

COVID-19 has shaken the foundations of the textiles, apparel and fashion industry. Global supply chains have been disrupted, retailers are restructuring their sourcing options, consumer behaviour is changing. At the same time, public authorities are introducing new environmental standards, and digitalisation is rapidly changing the nature of our business. To understand above mentioned trends and address its impact on our industry, the International Apparel Federation (IAF) and the European Confederation of Apparel and Textiles (EURATEX) have decided to organise a double convention:

IAF and EURATEX cordially invite representatives from the industry, but also public authorities, NGOs and academia to join us in Antwerp, to provide an answer to these challenges, but also to meet again – after so much time – to share ideas and develop new business opportunities.
