Major lessons learned in 2015
“All eyes on China (not U.S. or Europe): A 2 percent currency devaluation rattled world currency markets; Chinese shopping tours impacted major markets.
Trade and geopolitics: U.S. and China are flexing trade muscles to influence Asian countries.”
Predictions for 2016
“E-commerce continues its growth path in taking market share, but multi-channel retailers will be best performers.”
