Greetings and Nihao!
I am Siddharth Chatterjee, the United Nations Resident Coordinator to China.
On behalf of the UN in China, I would like to pass on our warmest regards to all those celebrating the Spring Festival in China and around the world.
Humanity continues to be challenged and upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, which still requires us all to work in compassion and solidarity to face this once-in-a-century global crisis.
For this special Spring Festival, let us resolve to recover and build a more peaceful, prosperous and sustainable future, leaving no one behind.
I thank the Government of China for its leadership, and for its push to advance multilateralism, and people of China for their support to the United Nations, in the Decade of Action for the Sustainable Development Goals.
I wish everyone good health, success and happiness on this Chinese Year of the Ox!
Happy Lunar New Year!
