This looks like good things (mind my geopolitical nerdiness for one second) for US-China relations, and it’s nice to see more people getting to experience the things that we love and the things that changed my (and I’m sure many others’) lives.
Bit of an old thread to dig up but I figured this was relevant if the given Ministry of Education (MOE) requirements were still as restrictive as they were in 2018-ish. It seems that these requirements make it quite difficult to host any official regional competitions.
Seeing as a regional was slated for China this year though in Hangzhou, I would hope this no longer is keeping HQ from coordinating regional competitions in China. The more pressing factor currently is COVID and how the government is trying to handle that. It’s even cited in the brief thread started just this past spring.
I know COVID restrictions there have only just began to loosen up, if at that. It will be interesting to see how the next couple months play out as someone who is hoping to see relatives next summer, barring the quarantine period (10 days) being as strict as it is right now.
As someone who’s rookie year was Sep 2020 from a Shanghainese team, I haven’t participated in any regular season regional competition yet…
So now I study in the US I choose to be volunteer in some regional events in the US and also the World Champ. Just do something to avoid being separated by the community😭
