China shuts up shop with Shanghai lockdown, China Cycle cancels – Cycle Industry News
Mark Sutton 31 March, 2022
The latest and quickly record breaking wave of Covid-19 has prompted the full lockdown of key business hub Shanghai and the mandatory closure of key trade events, for which China Cycle has now confirmed it is one.
“Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and the control policy in China, the 31st China International Bicycle Fair (China Cycle 2022), scheduled on May 6th to 9th, 2022, has been postponed. We apologise for the inconvenience brought to you,” wrote the organisers in a statement to potential visitors of the key eastern trade fair.
Globally, there is greater attention as to what is happening at the ports in the face of various restrictions present in the country. Specialist shipping sites have in the past week reported “surging” congestion where not so long ago the situation had been improving; it was, in fact, the West more proportionately to blame for holding up global shipping.
