I'm not sure which calendar dates you are referring to.

However different cultures have different ways of doing things.

Dates are normally expressed as DD/MM/YYYY in Europe but in North
America they use MM/DD/YYYY
Europeans tend to say 30th September whereas in NA they say September 30.

As I understand it the Chinese generally write their family name first.

What's important is that the date is unambiguous to all readers.
If the month is spelled out in letters then it is unlikely be confused
with a date.
Otherwise for numeric-only dates it is sensible to use the ISO format.

The ISO standard uses the order: year, month, day, e.g. 2016-09-30
That may not be as easy to read as quickly as one's normal format, but
it is unambiguous and has the advantage of sorting properly.
