Thai Princess Sirindhorn who was attending the ceremony for the 14th year, gave self-writing "Hai Zhu Gong Fu" pattern, or "happiness-bringing pig," to Ambassador Lyu and others during the ceremony.

In his speech, Ambassador Lyu stressed that China and Thailand are close neighbors with strong people-to-people connections while sharing many similarities.

He noted that the notion that Chinese and Thais are brothers and sisters is rooted in the hearts of both peoples and the Chinese Lunar New Year is a great time for both peoples to strength their friendship and mutual understanding.
