Shenzhen Weekly Round Up – Mar 6: Happy Women’s Day & China leaning into re-opening

Now Shenzhen   |   March 6, 2023

Dear Shenzhen-er,

TL:DR for this week: Happy Women's Day! China's continues to lean-in to reopening, flights, travel restrictions and government action all align with this theme.

Latest round of government meetings - set to end on March 11th - centered around the push towards re-opening and economic normalcy. A point of particular interest to much of our community is the drive to promote foreign direct investment. For the latest detailed information on China-bound travel have a look at this guide. Here's an interesting article highlighting some voices of the expat community in China promoting positive cultural exchange. Lastly, in local news, the Spanish Football Academy is set to begin training in Shenzhen in the near future.

We're looking for reputable service providers in the chiropractic / physiotherapy sector so if you've any recommendations or experiences you'd care to share with us please get in touch via Wechat (see note at bottom of this message)

In events this week Women's Day-themed activities and events dominate. There are the Women in Business seminar this Saturday or if you're up to venturing over to GuangZhou our friends at Global Friendship's are running a Women's Day Wellness event. Have a look at our events page for all your options.

~Hope you have a chance to show your appreciation to the women in your life (yourself included!) this week!~
