Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate supply chain management (SCM) issues in the Chinese textile and apparel (T&A) industry. Specifically, the study explores SCM practices, and the barriers to managing supply chain, as well as the impact of SCM socialization practices, inter-organizational communication practices, and information technology applications on buyer-supplier relationships. China is a major player in the global T&A industry, however to the researchers' best knowledge, no empirical research has been done on global SCM issues from the perspective of professionals in the Chinese T&A industry. The study aims to fill this gap.
