He said American retail market suffered serious hardship this year than before which led to traditional retailers closed and small fast fashion company bankruptcy. However, Amazon occupied traditional retail market quickly with its booming business so that retail market experienced much more downturn pressure. In 2017, Target accelerated the pace of transformation and upgrading by changing target customer groups, changing business strategies, improving customer experience, strengthening the differentiation construction from the retailers and enhancing communication with suppliers. In 2017, Target would put more focus on factories. Target required the suppliers had much close communication with their relevant departments in order to find better factories and expand the scope of cooperation. At the same time, Target expected their suppliers to increase investment to optimize production capacity by advance technology.
