Weather & Dress Considerations

The month of February is characterized by essentially constant daily high temperatures, with daily highs around 89°F throughout the month, not exceeding 91°F. Taking this weather into account, the trade mission dress code is business professional or business casual for identified meetings, dinners and receptions. Please bring casual wear for leisure and specified cultural activities. Please note: there will be time to change for dinner after the end of each day. There will also be a chance for casual dress during free time and site seeing.
