For the Chinese people, it is becoming a tradition for family members to come back from far off places to have dinner together with the family in the New Year and noticed that it is a very important day for the Chinese people. Participating happily and meeting with Ambassador of China and other guests is believed to be renewing the Myanmar-China Paukphaw relation as well as feeling like meeting with old friends.
Republic of the Union of Myanmar had a long border with People’s Republic of China and is good neighboring countries. In addition to raising the bilateral Paukphaw relation to all round strategic cooperation relation, there is a deep development in regional and international cooperation.
Especially mutual trust and friendship between the leaders of the two countries were firmly established and bilateral relations had reached a historically unique high level.
In addition to this, China’s support and firm stance with understanding toward Myanmar in the international arena is highly valued. People’s Republic of China is providing positive supports to Myanmar’s peace and national reconciliation processes as well as economic and technical support for the development of Myanmar people. It is believed that this will continue.
Mr. Xi Jinping’s policy of “Common Destiny of Mankind” or “Community of Common Destiny” is noticeable. Only when there is cooperation with mutual trust aimed toward equal development can there be stability and peace in the world.
Myanmar is participating enthusiastically in the People’s Republic of China’s Belt and Road Initiative and will continue cooperation toward the mutual benefit of the people of the two countries within the frame of the project.
Looking at the bilateral trade and investment sector, People’s Republic of China still stands as the country that had invested the most in Myanmar. It is wished that this is continued for the mutual benefit of the people of the two countries.
According to the calendar of China, 2019 is the Year of the Pig and represents luck and overall good fortune. As such in 2019, there is a full and complete belief that cooperation between the two countries will expand for good luck and overall good fortune of the people of the two countries.
In such a beautiful and pleasant Chinese New Year event, it is wished in conclusion that may the people of People’s Republic of China be happy. May there be stronger Myanmar-China all round strategic cooperation relation and friendship. May there be increase in peace, luck, prosperity and social security of the people of the two countries.
