This week, People First Team China members, Maidina and Luna, attended an event organised by London Chinatown Chinese Association and hosted by London and Partners in their beautiful riverside offices at More London. This was a pre-launch event, in preparation for 2018’s Chinese New Year celebrations, and included an official contract signing ceremony to confirm that these two organisations will co-host the event in Central London.
There were a number of attendees from within the Chinese community, including Chinese businesses, representatives from the Chinese media in the UK, as well as from the Chinese embassy. The speakers discussed the success of the 2017 Chinese New Year event and how the event had helped to improve tourism in London, as well promoting Anglo-Chinese community links. The event included a small Lion Dance Show, which is a traditional show especially for Cantonese people at New Year.
