Danish Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen extended his New Year greetings to the Chinese people ahead of the Chinese Lunar Year of the Pig.
"The Year of the Pig is said to be good for investing and making money. I think this will be true for both China and Denmark. So let us keep investing and trading for mutual benefit!" said Rasmussen.
Rasmussen also cited the close trade relations between China and Denmark. “China is a big importer of Danish pig meat. Surely, this trade will increase even more in the Year of the Pig,” he said.
He added that 2018 marked the 10th anniversary of the China-Denmark comprehensive strategic partnership and is a "testament to our strong relations."
"May our cooperation and friendship grow even more in 2019, the eleventh year of the Partnership between China and Denmark," said Rasmussen.
