China are setting up various cultural extravaganzas in the UK and Malta to coincide with Chinese New Year. The stated goals of the events as a whole are, as ever, to strengthen cultural understanding, forge relationships etc. The events in the UK will be organised by ‘China Now’ a private venture started by, among others, Peter Wong the executive director of HSBC. The Malta festivities will be smaller in scale and appear to be a Chinese government run activity.
