Our factory will close for Chinese New Year on 23rd January and reopen 8th February.  I want wish our workers at the factory a Happy Chinese New Year – or in Cantonese, Hey Fat Choy.  2017, the year of the Rooster, let’s hope it is a good one. The actual day falls on Saturday 28th January 2017.  If you get the chance head off to your local Chinatown to join the celebration.

The majority of the China population live outside cities in the country.  Many workers move to the city to work.  While CYN is a big event in itself, it is one of the few times in the year workers get to see their families.  Billions of journeys are made in this period and is the world’s largest annual human migration.
