A congratulatory letter from UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak was read out at the event. "I applaud the work the LCCA does to support the Chinese business community in London…I am grateful for the continued contributions of the British Chinese Community and their achievements across the country," Sunak wrote.

A message of congratulations from Britain's King Charles III was also sent to the celebration. The letter, in response to the LCCA's message, was sent by a loyal greetings officer at the British royal household and expressed warm regards. "The King sends his warmest good wishes to all those who will be present for a most successful and memorable event," it said.

In addition to the lively parade and stage performances, there were cultural workshops, interactive games, and food stalls set up around Trafalgar Square.

"The Year of the Dragon is considered one of the most powerful and auspicious years in the Chinese zodiac, symbolizing strength, fortune and success. On this wonderful occasion, I hope that the UK-based Chinese communities can be united and continue to thrive, growing into a strong link for friendly cooperation between China and the UK," said Deng Zhuting, president of LCCA.
