Following Chinese New Year business customs can show that you are culturally sensitive and respectful, and if you operate in Hong Kong then it’s best if you are able to consider your business partner’s heritage, too.
Chinese New Year celebrations are something that all Chinese look forward to, with many traditions that are followed year after year. Accommodating and embracing these traditions will certainly work in your favor and be considered as good business etiquette.
We’ve put together a list of do’s and don’ts for Chinese New Year, to make your business partners feel respected and your team members right at home!
Chinese New Year means that restaurants and temples will be packed, and many shops will be closed.

While we celebrate, remember to take note of special business hour arrangements at our various locations. Check out our Facebook and Instagram for any updates, and we look forward to seeing you with us!
