A parade to celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year was held in the city center of Dubai on Friday. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice-president and prime minister of the UAE and Ni Jian, Chinese Ambassador to the UAE, along with a number of government officials and royals in the UAE were present at the event. At the same time, tens of thousands of people, including overseas Chinese, visitors and locals attended the gathering and shared the joyously festive atmosphere for the Chinese Lunar New Year celebration.

Li Xuhang, consul general of China in Dubai, delivered a speech and said that the annual parade has become the grandest event to celebrate the Chinese Spring Festival for overseas Chinese in Dubai. He added the parade also can boost people-to-people exchanges between China and the UAE.

It is worth noting that 2019 was a momentous year as it marked the 35th anniversary of bilateral relations between China and the UAE.
