The organizers of the Xiamen Stone Fair have sent us the following press release responding to the government’s decision to ease Covid-19 restrictions:
With joint exploration and efforts in the past three years, a “new normal” that ensures the safety and health of the people to the greatest extent, while maintains the normal operation of society and guarantees a sound economic development is taking shape. Since November, China has continued to optimize measures against the pandemic. In order to better go through the transitional period and expect a more open-up situation, Xiamen Stone Fair Organizing Committee has decided to reschedule the 23rd China Xiamen International Stone Fair from March 26-29, 2023 to June 5-8, 2023.
We deeply apologize for any inconvenience it may cause. With all efforts, we will create a safe and rewarding gathering for the stone community. The whole industry were sticking together to face challenges and overcome difficulties over years. And we will continue to work as a whole, take a high focus on industrial development to grasp the trends and plan for the future.
On Nov. 11, China introduced 20 optimization rules on COVID-19 prevention and control, especially for inbound travelers including:
1. Length of quarantine is cut to 8 days from 10 days.
2. Only one negative nucleic acid testing result taken 48 hours needed before boarding.
3. The positive criterion is defined as CT value less than 35 on nucleic acid testing results.
4. Circuit breaker for inbound flights is canceled.
We hope more regulations on international traveling will be eased in the coming future. Looking forward to meeting you on June 5-8, 2023 at Xiamen Stone Fair to enjoy booming business.
We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
All the best,
Xiamen Stone Fair Organizing Committee
