Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week
For our Chinese readers around the world, Happy Year of the Rat. While the rat may not get a good rap in Western culture, it is one of the most popular signs in the Chinese zodiac.
In Chinese mythology, the rat is seen as clever and quick-thinking, but, at the same time, reliable and stable.
Those are all traits that will benefit materials handling as the industry faces geopolitical uncertainty and financial instability.
All of us at Forkliftaction wish the Chinese community Gong hei fat choy
(great happiness and prosperity).
