I am delighted to send this message to the British Chinese Community on Chinese New Year to celebrate the Year of the Rooster. This is a time to celebrate with friends and family, to reflect on the past year and look forward to the next year.
The British Chinese community contributes to all aspects of life here in the UK, from our economy to our businesses, arts and public services. There is a strong tradition of working hard and looking after your elders which is rooted firmly within the Chinese community, and these values embody my vision for the country.
I look forward to meeting representatives of the UK's Chinese community to listen to their thoughts on how we can build on the strong relationship that the Labour Party has established with the Chinese community and develop together the policies to help us make Britain a stronger and fairer society for all.
On behalf of the Labour Party, I would like to wish you all a prosperous, successful and happy year ahead.
