Nowadays, Greenwich Mean Time, abbreviated as GMT, is a time zone designation rather than a time standard. Time difference between time zones can be expressed by the GMT or UTC offset. In the UTC standard, there is a commitment to keep within 0.9 seconds of GMT, so that every few years a leap second is applied to UTC. In the age of the internet, these small clock calibrations are conveniently destributed via NTP.

UTC/GMT+8 is 8 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

Some countries with this offset celebrate the New Year according to the lunar calendar.
