Chinese National Day
Chinese National Day is celebrated 1st of October, however it is typically part of a week long holiday called Golden Week.
Golden Week
The holiday associated with the Chinese National Day, is typically referred to as Golden Week.
Some weekend days off are often forfeited from before and after the Chinese National Day, to make a week long holiday.
It is the longest official holiday in China after CNY.
Impact on Production
Obviously a week long national holiday will impact production and shipping schedules.
Moreover, the center piece of the Chinese National Day celebrations includes a major parade and Military Review in the center of Beijing.
The autumn weather lends its self to clear skies, and the central government is determined to minimize pollution ahead of the parade.
That will often mean certain production activities are restricted late September in the lead up to the holiday, especially in areas several hundred kilometers from
Often factories in southern parts of China may be effected, depending on their “up stream” supply chain.
If in any doubt, check with us at QPILtd or your supplier.
