Dear friends from the People’s Republic of China,

The previous year brought many obstacles and troubles to the humanity. The COVID-19 pandemic, which hopefully will be ended soon, has changed the way we live and perform our everyday duties. Now we are entering the New Chinese Year, which, in according to the traditional Chinese belief, is the year in the sign of the Metal Ox. It symbolizes diligence, honesty, and persistence. Therefore, we believe that the upcoming Chinese New Year, which is celebrated on February 12, will bring humanity persistence and diligence in the fight against the pandemic, as well as in many other challenges that it will face in the coming period. Institute of International Politics and Economics on this occasion congratulates to its partners and associates a happy and prosperous Chinese New Year!
