16 February 2021 Online Chinese New Year Celebration
Despite social distancing constraints arising from COVID-19 pandemic, the BHKS, together with the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Brussels and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, jointly organised the online Chinese New Year celebration on 16 February 2021, to celebrate the arrival of the Year of the Ox.
The online event attracted around 60 BHKS members and friends of Hong Kong in Belgium. Ms Sophie Wilmes, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belgium, sent a written message to grace the event. A jazz quartet based in the Netherlands, comprising two Hong Kong musicians, also staged a lively professional jazz performance featuring some traditional Chinese New Year festive songs.
