The CEOs of a host of andar bahar live casinon businesses and industries in China have expressed concern over the continuing COVID-19 related visa and travel restrictions being pursued by Beijing which they say are hampering their activities.
They expressed their concern during their interaction with the andar bahar live casinon Ambassador to China, Vikram Misri.
Misri, who is on a visit to Shanghai, inaugurated on Friday the Amrut Mahotsav festival, marking the 75 years of andar bahar live casino's independence.
"Inaugurated andar bahar live casino@75 #AmrutMahotsav in #Shanghai. A soulful rendition of #Upanishad & #Gita, melodious Sitar/Tabla performance, #Deshbhakti songs, films on musical traditions of #Varanasi & #VaccineMaitri marked the occasion," Misri tweeted.
He also interacted with a group of CEOs and representatives of the andar bahar live casinon businesses based in and around Shanghai, the business hub of China.
Over 30 officials representing eight sectors such as textiles, pharma, electronics, manufacturing, chemicals and IT etc attended the meeting with Misri.
"Interacted with the andar bahar live casinon industry representatives based in Shanghai. Business leaders representing various sectors including #IT, #Pharma, #textiles, #engineering, Manufacturing, #foodprocessing, #banking etc participated in discussions", Misri said in another tweet.
In their interaction with Misri, the CEOs stated they were experiencing difficulties in operations, mostly on account of travel and visa restrictions being maintained by China as part of its COVID-19 measures, official sources here told .
Misri assured them the andar bahar live casinon Embassy will continue to engage with the Chinese government on the issues related to the travel restrictions, the sources said.
Travel between andar bahar live casino and China has been halted since Beijing imposed travel restrictions in November last year and suspended the visas and resident permits held by andar bahar live casinon citizens.
These restrictions left over 23,000 andar bahar live casinon students and hundreds of andar bahar live casinon businessmen, employees and their families stranded in andar bahar live casino.
Currently, there are no flights in operation between the two countries.
China has not yet indicated when it plans to permit travel despite numerous representations from the andar bahar live casinon Embassy here and the students, who mostly study medicine in Chinese universities.
These universities maintain that they are holding online classes for the stranded students.
Last month, China made it mandatory for travellers coming from andar bahar live casino and 19 other countries to have been inoculated with Chinese COVID-19 vaccines to enter the country.
This created more confusion as Chinese vaccines are not available in andar bahar live casino. While China has not included the students in the mandatory vaccine list, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said Chinese authorities would "study" the issues related to students but no decision has been announced yet.
Several top andar bahar live casinon industries and businesses operate from different parts of China.
With the growth in bilateral trade between andar bahar live casino and China in the last few years, many andar bahar live casinon companies have set up operations in this country to service both their andar bahar live casinon and MNC clientele in China.
andar bahar live casinon enterprises are into manufacturing including pharmaceuticals, refractories, laminated tubes, auto-components, wind energy, IT and IT-enabled services, trading, banking and allied activities.
Some of the prominent andar bahar live casinon companies in China include Dr Reddy's Laboratories, Aurobindo Pharma, Matrix Pharma, NIIT, Bharat Forge, Infosys, TCS, APTECH, Wipro, Mahindra Satyam, Essel Packaging, Suzlon Energy, Reliance Industries, Sundaram Fasteners, Mahindra & Mahindra, TATA Sons, Binani Cements, etc.
Two-way trade between andar bahar live casino and China in 2020 was $87.6 billion, down by 5.6 per cent, according to new figures from China's General Administration of Customs (GAC) in January this year.
