Ms. Dongqing He (Commercial Director) provided an update on Covid-19 situation bringing us up to date with the global and local scenario. The Covid-19 situation has not eased off, rather, globally it has worsened in recent months. We are facing various travel restrictions worldwide, including visa, flight, and quarantine restrictions. International travel into and out of China has been severely restricted. The Company will continue to closely monitor the development of Covid-19 epidemic. In the meantime, all colleagues are requested to reduce unnecessary travel, go for vaccination, have short vacations within China, and focus on self HSE protection.
