China Opens for Business in Year of the Monkey after CNY break

by on Feb.14, 2016, under China Manufacturing Blog

China is officially open for business again.

Today is the first official work day for the 2016 Year of the Monkey.

That said, travel statistics indicate that the tide has not yet fully turned on the worlds largest human migration, which occurs each year as Chinese people typically return to their home town to celebrate the Lunar Spring Festival or Chinese New Year.

The bulk of people traveling are Chinese factory workers. Most come from farm areas and rural towns, traveling to manufacturing areas. While working in the factories they live in onsite dormitory accommodation.

The start of mass production in China after CNY break, should always be considered with some caution! Extra planning, vigilance and QC – Quality Control should be considered, especially extra DUPRO.

On one hand many factory workers are in no rush to go back to factory dorms and work, so factories will often be under staffed in the initial weeks and months. Also, many factory workers will aim to “move up” to  a better position so will often go to a different factory, often in completely different industry.
