"We also wishfully await reshoring or bringing back manufacturing and also design back to USA. This will enhance the middle class person's quality of life and USA will look much healthier."

-hm, everybody is talking about that, but whether they really have the skilled manpower for that?

I just returned from the DMSMS Conference in Orlando and feel really good about the steps industry is taking to address the counterfeit issue. The first step to fixing a problem is to acknowledge that a problem exists. I think we've finally reached a consensus that this is a serious issue and as a result substantive conversations re: mitigation plans are taking place. By no means is the problem solved, but I am encouraged that the supply chain as a whole is working towards a solution.

"I hope this year we see some loosening of the purse strings by banks and big corporations to fund and support  the SMEs to reallly get this "recovery" on to a solid footing.  All the best for 2014 to everyone, families and friends."

Flyingscot, you are right about the cost factor. Most of the customers, including corporate are concerned about this purchasing power due to lucrative and flexible market.
