Dear PFI community,

2021 has been a year full of challenges but also possibilities for all businesses due to the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Companies have employed different strategies to tackle and overcome hardship. In response to changes in the world economy and market landscape, as well as the demand for sustainability, PFI Fareast prioritizes and promotes innovation internally and across global supply chains, through optimising supply chain traceability and digitalisation.

PFI has organised virtual events this year which have been highly regarded by our attendees. These online events have brought together a diverse range of stakeholders, including industry leaders, brands, NGOs, thought leaders, associations and more, to exchange insights, allowing every party to gain a better understanding of various perspectives.

As part of the solution, PFI is well-prepared to walk with the fashion industry and better improve and support businesses with their ventures. We will take on a new look to set the tone for sustainability within the industry. Stay tuned with us!
