|Response from the Spokesperson of the Chinese Consulate General in Sydney to <br>questions regarding the Chinese Lunar New Year|
Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival is the most important traditional festival to Chinese people and constitutes an integral part of Australian multiculturalism. In recent years, Lunar New Year celebrations across New South Wales have been immensely enjoyed and widely participated by local people. Due to the impact of COVID-19, the Lunar New Year celebrations for the Year of the Ox will be different from the past. The Chinese Consulate General in Sydney looks forward to celebrating the festive season in various ways and renewing friendship with friends from all walks of life in NSW.
