|This week sees the Chinese New Year celebrated not only in Asia, but among Chinese communities around the world.
For non-Chinese businesses, the two-week period following New Year can be frustrating as companies close and production slows down, but for the Chinese, it's a time for family and regeneration - all necessary for a balanced life.
We wish all our Chinese readers a successful year ahead. The traditional greeting we convey is:
祝您, 鸡年大吉! 新想事成 !
