The Chinese New Year celebrations are the biggest event in the Chinese calendar, a time to gather together with friends and family and prepare for the year ahead.
Over the next year, the Labour Party will be showing our plan for how we can deal with the cost of living crisis both now and in the future so that we can earn and grow our way to a higher standard of living for people.
I know that the Chinese community has always contributed a great deal to our economy and our society. You have a strong tradition of working hard and looking after each other, values which are at the heart of Britain and the Labour Party and I'd like to thank you for your contributions. I look forward to strengthening my links with the Chinese community over the coming year.
我深知华人社群一直以来对我国的经济和社会贡献良多。 你们有着勤劳实干和相 互扶助的优良传统，这也是英国社会和工党深以为本的价值理念。我为此向你们的 付出致以感谢。我期待着在新的一年里继续加深我与华人社群的联系。
On behalf of the Labour party I want to wish you all happy and successful year of the horse.
