In 2015, Prime Source Forum (PSF) celebrates its 10th anniversary from March 24-25 at the Holiday Inn Golden Mile, Hong Kong, with a focus on Africa this time.

According to the organiser, Yeh Shan, during the two-days, companies from textile and apparel sector and fashion retail markets will discuss the world’s trade development and its impact on their industries.

“PSF was initiated to echo the quota elimination transiting from 2006 to 2010, and further established itself during the financial crises and economic shifts from 2010 to 2015,” it said in a press release.

The Forum will again cover trends in textile material technology and sustainability, through apparel sourcing decisions and cost reduction efforts and their implications on fashion and retailing.

This year, the main focus will be on Africa and opportunities for apparel production in emerging countries like Kenya.

The Forum will also follow up on Bangladesh and what has been achieved since last year’s discussion, as well as an overview of PSF’s satellite event held in China in Autumn 2014.

“The Forum draws the potential from support of the industry’s world leaders who like to come and share their ideas, opinions and experiences,” Martin Keil, MD at Yeh Shen said.

“Its beauty lies in the fact that the PSF platform is financially independent and it can be adjusted according to participant needs,” Keil added.

Adan Mohamed, the cabinet secretary of the Ministry of Industralisation and Enterprise Development from Kenya will give the keynote address at PSF.

In addition, executives from Adidas, APL Logistics, Bayer MaterialScience, Lanier Clothes, Larimode, New Balance, Otto Group, PVH, TAL Group, Under Armour and VF Corp will share their wisdom.

A panel providing solutions to overcoming massive changes will be chaired by KPMG director; Pat Woo which will discuss trend and demand projection, product strategy, inventory control and replenishment.

Some of the senior executives who have signed up to attend PSF include representatives from adidas, BSCI, BV, Coats, Control Union, Cotton Council, Crocs, Euro Centra, Groz-Beckert, Hugo Boss, etc.

Prime Source Forum (PSF) was initiated by APLF in 2006 to address the issue of quota elimination in the apparel industry. After staging eight editions, PSF is now organised by Yeh Shen Ltd under licence of APLF. (AR)
