A very happy New Year to all our Western clients, colleagues and friends and a happy Chinese New Year to our resident Chinese clients, fellow workmates and your families.

Once again, it is the long-awaited Spring Festival, and we are set for a period of family reunion and celebratory festivities as we bring in the Lunar New Year. A new year is always a time for enjoying those special moments at home with family – good company, great food, good fun and great anticipation for all the wonderful things that await us in 2023.

The Lunar year is here, and Chinese New Year is upon us. Walking down the street it is lovely to see the bright and flamboyant decorations, red lamps lining the sidewalks and the malls and public places showcasing the significance that this special time brings. It is also a time of generosity and gratitude, with red envelopes (hóngbāo) passing between family, friends and colleagues, a tradition that symbolizes luck and prosperity. This year is the year of the rabbit, one of the luckiest animals in the Chinese zodiac – representing both good fortune and success as the tides begin to change and we invite all the promise and hope that the new year can bring. It is also a time for reflection and new beginnings, a time where we all in the mood for some changes and breakthroughs.
At IES, we wish you prosperity and success. Our red envelope to you, this year, is some great news! After being closed for three years, China will reopen its borders, and will eliminate the mandatory quarantine requirement for entry into the country.  What it means is that teachers and administrators now have the freedom to travel freely as China opens its borders. Many schools will be clamoring for teachers as staff who have been “quarantined” in one school, or in China for almost 3 years may be looking for greener pastures. This firecracker news is certain to start the year off with a big bang!
