With fireworks pop high in the sky, China welcomes a new year with good fortune. It’s important to be aware that the effects of Chinese New Year will be felt long before February 20.
1.It is imperative to know the effects of Chinese New Year on business.
Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival. It is the most important festival and also the most celebrated festival in China. As China’s position in the world shifts, the festival now no longer influences only those who celebrate it, but has an ever larger effect internationally ——particularly for those doing business in, or with, China.
2.For people doing dropshipping with China.
The cities close down to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Inconvenience may caused in this major festival in China.
Similar bottlenecks can occur in the shipping or logistics industries, so it is important to ensure that shipments are booked and at port well in advance of the shipment date. Most Chinese port areas will be closed completely or will be operating in a limited capacity.
