The Chinese New Year Melbourne Festival heralds the dawn of this new year, especially for those born in the tenth sign of the Chinese Zodiac. Victoria s Chinese community has played a key role in the development of our state, stretching back to its earliest days. In fact, Melbourne is home to the longest continuous Chinese settlement in any western country and is home to one of the oldest Chinatowns in the southern hemisphere. The Government s commitment to Chinese New Year celebrations recognises those strong historical relationships between Victoria and China and our commitment to see that bond grow stronger. The festival shows Victoria s vibrant multiculturalism and inclusiveness as a hub for locals, visitors and international students to share in the celebrations. The Victorian Government will continue to strengthen our peopleto-people links with China through tourism, business engagement and of course through the many Chinese students that choose to study in Victoria for years to come. I wish you all happiness, prosperity and a wonderful New Year!
