The Embassy will, as always, support LCCA and other Chinese community organisations, develop innovative services and improve the quality of services. In whatever the Embassy does, it will strive to safeguard the rights and interests of overseas Chinese.

Lord Mayor of Westminster Audrey Lewis praised the Chinese community for their important role in strengthening the vigor, creativity and entrepreneurship of the city and promoting multi-cultural development. She also expressed her thanks to the Chinese community for their support in the development of Westminster and Chinatown, and said she was looking forward to attending the inauguration of a new archway in Chinatown.

Mr. Chu Ting Tang, President and Chairman of the 18th Executive Committee of LCCA, reviewed the work of the Association, and expressed his appreciation to the Chinese Embassy and the Chinese community for their encouragement and support.
