- Josh Green, co-founder and CEO of Panjiva,
- Judy Blackburn, director at Kurt Salmon

We asked the panel what they think will be the challenges and opportunities for the year ahead, what keeps them awake at night, the state of retail, and what's happening with sourcing.

Long-time contributor David Birnbaum also homes in on the problems facing those brands who have set their sights on developing markets in China and Russia; and a solution for the new model full-service factories.
