The second China International Import Expo (CIIE) kicks off on November 5 in Shanghai and it's kind of a big deal. Last year, Xi Jinping made the trek down to Shanghai for the inaugural event. We're not sure if Xi will make an appearance this year, but Emmanuel Macron has announced that he will be attending next month's CIIE.
The expo is such a big deal that the government announced Monday, November 4 and Tuesday, November 5 have been adjusted to rest days. But, as is so often the case with these things, those days off come at a price. Saturday, November 2 and Saturday, November 9 have been adjusted to workdays.
The announcement has caused a lot of confusion, since not all companies are required to comply with the changes. So, you might want to double-check with your boss about your company's work schedule.
The second China International Import Expo runs from November 5-10 at the National Convention and Exhibition Center. Oh, and if you're looking for something to do on that holiday Tuesday, why not watch the Melbourne Cup at Hooked?
