International Supplier Day

The third session of the Beconnected supplier day was held on the 6th of March 2014 at the Shanghai embassy hotel. Since Besourced Bangladesh was launched last year, we also brought in some suppliers from Bangladesh to join this event. And suppliers from Cambodia joined this supplier day as well. Therefore, it was an international suppliers day.

There were more than 60 people out of 30 suppliers who attended this meeting. After our General Manager, Miriam, gave a welcome speech, Joyce Chau from BSCI introduced a BSCI update of the new code of conduct. Later on, Oliver Ammann from the Hohenstein institute made a presentation about the inspection procedure.

In the afternoon, suppliers were separated into four groups to discuss some hot topics in the Chinese textile industry and brainstormed with all of us. In particular, we got intelligence exchange with our suppliers from Bangladesh and Cambodia.

By the end of the day, we announced “the supplier of the year 2013″ and “the most promising supplier of the year 2013″. The winner got to travel to Europe with his whole family. Michele gave the closure speech and is looking forward to meeting everybody next time.
