China has postponed an important annual financial forum in Shanghai this week, according to local officials, as the country battles a new wave of Covid outbreak.

The Lujiazui Forum, originally scheduled to be held in person in the Chinese financial capital Wednesday and Thursday, was delayed because the organizers needed to hold “further discussions on the key topics,” the Shanghai Municipal Financial Regulatory Bureau said in a statement.
