“As we enter the Year of the Goat, I hope this year will be one of happiness, prosperity and creativity,” Ms Peulich said.
“Chinese New Year is a good time to reflect on the strong ties Australia and China enjoy, both economically and socially.”
“I pay tribute to the positive contributions Chinese Australian’s have, and continue make towards our great state of Victoria,” Ms Peulich said.
“Chinese values of family, hard work, strong sense of tradition and vibrant celebrations continue to add to the multicultural spirit of Melbourne.”
“On behalf of the Liberal and National parties, I recognise the hard work of Victorians of Chinese descent and the important work they do within the Chinese Community,” Ms Peulich said.
“Again, I wish you a safe and prosperous 2015, and Year of the Goat.”
