The China Network, Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office

The China Network N

HMG's China Network is nominated for exceptional crisis response as COVID-19 spread in China. They managed the successful evacuation of British nationals from the epicentre of Wuhan, and used accurate situational awareness to shape UK ministerial and scientific policies at a crucial stage of the outbreak. A challenging context included closure of consulates in Wuhan and Chongqing, the largest draw-down of over 400 UK-based staff and dependants, and significant restrictions on staff movements. Colleagues from 18 government departments worked in crisis structures, giving 24/7 support to British nationals and meeting intense ministerial demand for analysis at the most uncertain and rapidly evolving stage of the COVID-19 outbreak.
