Lukminto – the Vice President Director of Sritex as their special guest speaker.
The talk show focused on problems in garment productions and their solutions such as: how to boost the home industry’s capabilities, how to minimize the production lead time, the pros and cons of producing goods in Indonesia, why brands need to focus more on their innovation and be consistent to their core values in order to sustain in this saturated market.
