Eastern Standard Time
If you are in China and would like to contact or set up meetings in EST, you will have to work outside of your typical work hours as the work hours do not overlap due to the large time difference.
Therefore, those in China will have to make arrangements between 10:00pm and 7:00am because these are the typical, 9:00am to 6:00pm, working hours for those in EST.
Those in EST on the other hand, looking to contact those in China, will find it best to schedule meetings between 8:00pm and 5:00am as that is when they will most likely be at work as well.
