As Chinese people around the world celebrate the lunar new year, British Prime Minister David Cameron has sent his greetings from 10 Downing Street.

"On this new year, I want to pay tribute to the incredible contribution that the British Chinese community makes to this country. So let me once again wish you a happy new year and every possible success for the next twelve months. Happy New Year (in Chinese)," greeted by David Cameron, UK PM.

Cameron said the celebrations reflect the richness and vibrancy of Chinese culture in the UK, and it's a good moment to reflect on Britain's relations with China. He stressed the economic ties particularly and reminded of his visit to China last year, accompanied by Britain's largest-ever trade delegation. The British Prime Minister said he hoped both countries would continue working closely together in future years, as Britain is more open to Chinese investment than many other western countries.
