What are things like for suppliers now 6 months after all the order cancellations? Have things gotten better, or worse?
Why do suppliers subcontract?
How have payment terms evolved over the years and what do suppliers consider as “favorable/good” payment terms, i.e. that give them financial security.?
If social compliance audits don’t work, why do brands keep finding compliance issues and what else should they do?
