China has for a long time now, had its borders pretty tightly closed to overseas visitors as part of its zero or Covid elimination policy. This has obviously caused a great many problems and distress to many different groups. In particular businesses and companies. However, according to The American China Chamber of Commerce China will launch a US-China travel fast-track program to start in early 2022.
The purpose of the fast-track arrangement is to provide a more efficient, predictable and reliable channel for essential US company executives, technical personnel and their dependent family members to come to China.Global Times

The survey, conducted by the British Chamber of Commerce in China, reflects the perceived costs of China’s “zero-tolerance” Covid-19 strategy on foreign companies as they continue to operate in the world’s second-largest economy.
