Chinese New Year Greeting 2023 - Year of the Rat

China and particularly the Chinese (people originating from China) have been settling in Papua New Guinea both pre and post Independence. Once there were China Towns in almost every town and city. Thriving with Chinese tradition, culture and food. 

Many Chinese who settled in PNG are businessmen/women. There is a new wave of Chinese migrants coming into PNG, attracted by the relaxed (not-often-policed) business regulations. Unlike the Chinese in China Towns, the new migrants are business opportunists trying to make a living in this country.

Chinese New Year 2020 Greetings to You

2020 is the year of the Rat. Rat is the symbol of wealth! To the Chinese migrants, as you grow your wealth, give the best service you can to the people of this nation. It's Yin and Yang.

Your attempt to make money/fortune out of the pocket of the poor PNG by taking advantage of its inability to police strict business rules is not the Chinese way. 

If you are running a Haus Kai, cook good food and feed the people.

What is the animal for Chinese New Year 2020?


How long is the Chinese New Year 2020?

What is the year 2020?

What is the lucky colour for 2020?

Red, pink, and orange

To a long time Papua New Guinean Chinese, wishing you a 
Happy New Year: 新年快乐 (xīn nián kuài lè).
