February 2020 in China

Start of March, and the “working” New Year of the OX is probably now almost back to normal. Most people who went away for their Spring Festival came back around a week ago after the statuary 7 days. Many others tacked an extra few days onto the event.

But by now, the majority of China’s work force should be back, and cranked up to full speed.
If you have any doubt of this, just check China’s depressing air quality figures for the tail end of February as factories turn on everything to make up for down time.

In today’s Aim2D issue we are going to try something a little different. A quick, wrap or look back at SOME of the stories that made news in China last month. Most we did not cover.
Of course, these are business related one way or another – there was, probably, a lot more going on in other sectors!
We hope it gives you a slightly wider viewpoint and understanding of China and some of the events etc that may impact your business and decision making here.
