Commerce Ministry Supports ‘Business As Usual’ for Qualified Enterprises
14 February 2020
China’s Ministry of Commerce has called upon enterprises which are able to resume business to do so because, at this critical time of prevention and control of the coronavirus pneumonia epidemic, demand for daily necessities is steadily growing in big and medium-sized cities due to factors such as the impact of the epidemic and the extension of the public holiday.
As work resumes in commercial and trading enterprises, the Ministry is calling upon all levels of the relevant commerce departments to provide epidemic prevention and control support to enterprises, including wholesale markets, supermarkets, convenience stores and community grocery stores, in order that they may resume business as soon as possible. Measures will also be taken to help them with sourcing and procurement, shipment, distribution and stock replenishment, and to conscientiously ensure the smooth resumption of operation in these enterprises.
Full details can be found in the Circular on Properly Organising the Resumption of Work and Operation in Commercial and Trading Enterprises issued by the General Office of the Ministry of Commerce on 5 February.
