A best case scenario sees an industry that has invested in its people, in its equipment and in its relations leading to a more sustainable, transparent and effective industry.  In this scenario, the industry can support the industrial development of countries with rising wages supported by rising productivity.  It can support the creation of new jobs in high cost economies through the emergence of new fashion brands.

Meeting these challenges and creating the best case scenario requires global corporations, which is what the IAF offers.  Many retailers, brands, manufacturers, solution providers and industry associations are already working hard to further improve the industry.  By building bridges across continents and helping to link national or regional solutions to form international ones, the IAF is supporting the industry’s positive growth.
