The EU-China Friendship Group in the European Parliament (EP) sent its greetings to China on Tuesday, wishing all Chinese citizens a happy New Year.

"We are writing in anticipation of the coming Chinese Spring Festival, to express our best wishes to China for the occasion," said a letter signed by Secretary-General of the Group Nirj Deva and emailed to Xinhua.

The Chinese Lunar New Year, or the Spring Festival, falls on Feb.7.

It said that the Year of the Rat is "a good year," cordially wishing that the year "makes China more prosperous and assists her to flourish, that her nation is stronger and her people are more successful."

"We wish all Chinese people good health, safety and happiness in 2008," MEP Deva said in the letter on behalf of the group.

It said that the Year of the Pig, 2007 was "a fruitful year for us," adding that friendship "between the EU and China was much more close and solid, and the relationship with China has been improved greatly by our common effort in the European Parliament."

This was the optimistic basis "to further develop our relationship in 2008," the letter read.

"We hope that the EU-China Friendship Group will further strengthen the strategic cooperation over political and economic relations, innovations in education and other similar projects," it said.

The group was looking forward to working hard together to achieve all this in the coming year, saying, "Our achievement for EU-China friendship will be a lasting benefit for all generations."

"Assuring you of our highest consideration at all times," the letter concluded.
