Mexico City rings in the Chinese Year of the Dog

16 February 2018

Mexico City rang in the Chinese New Year with performances, gastronomy and music on show to mark the Year of the Dog on Thursday. The festivities featured the typical Dragon's dance in the streets of the capital's China Town. The large Chinese community has been instrumental in organising New Year festivities in Mexico City for nearly three decades. With Chinese companies increasingly investing in the capital, the government and business leaders have sought out such events to enhance its relations with China.
