China Gvt and your Business

great hall of the people

Today, Thursday, 4th March 202, the Chinese Government begins what is colloquially known as Two Sessions 2021 meetings. It happens around this time every year when CCP members and officials from every China province gather in Beijing, evaluate the past year and thrash out plans and policies etc for the coming year.

This year is a little different in that the Party will also look at the next 5 years economic, and social development as Chinese leaders gear up to release their next five year plan. It is also set of course against the backdrop of another year of Covid. This short extract, courtesy of Caixin Global:

The term refers to the gatherings of the National People’s Congress, China’s legislature, which begins Friday; and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), which starts Thursday.

If you were keen on more detail regarding the 2 sessions, Caixin has it covered in one of their premium articles and will likley run crucial daily updates plus a post mortem analysis.. However, today this short article explains why, if you have business in China, the next 2 days might be crucial for you.

Every year just prior to the official start of the 2 sessions, China tightens security. This includes the Internet. So if you are a foreign business with an off shore site pointing to China, expect serious delays in load times.

In other words, from late yesterday afternoon, yesterday, until Monday evening or Tuesday the China Internet becomes very slow. You can expect your web sites to either take longer to load, not load fully or maybe, not even load at all. There is very little, if anything you can do about it, except perhaps, step up your China social media but at least you are now aware of the situation.

If you would like to discuss your social media in China, have a chat with Everlyne.
