A new year is a chance to take a step back and put things into perspective so that you can plan out your new goals and prospects. For many in the electronic components industry, as well as many other industries that rely heavily on Chinese manufacturing, this down time quickly shifts into a scramble to secure as many orders as they can before they are hit by an annual freeze in the supply chain.

The Chinese Zodiac calendar is over 2,000 years old and cycles through 12 different animals. This year represents the final animal in the ever-repeating cycle, the pig. The pig is said to represent wealth and fortune. According to Chinesenewyear.net, men born in the year of the pig are optimistic and gentle, while women born in this year are easy-going and very social. Business owners and distributers will be happy to hear that 2019 forecasts to be a great year to make money and find great success.

The Chinese New Year is upon us, and production in many areas of the country has paused for about the next two weeks as China welcomes the Year of the Pig. Most Chinese workers have returned home by now to celebrate with their families.
