On May 29, the Shanghai government released 50 new policies aimed at helping the local economy recover from the city’s strict Covid lockdowns that began two months ago. Among the announced measures is the canceling of the city’s “whitelist” policy, which enabled a list of approved companies to reopen under certain conditions, as authorities aim for a full resumption of production in the city from June. Other points of the action plan include a commitment to “dismiss inappropriate limitations” on companies as they seek to return to full operation, and an easing of restrictions on auto, semiconductor, and biotech firms and their supply chains as the government attempts to speed up a return to normal production rates.
