February 14, 2010


On behalf of the American people, I offer warm wishes for peace, prosperity, and health to everyone around the world celebrating the Lunar New Year. People on every continent will mark this occasion with rich and varied traditions, ushering in a new year of promise and possibility. In the United States, millions of Asian-Americans will gather with friends and family to welcome the Year of the Tiger and honor their vibrant heritage. This is an opportunity to reaffirm the bonds of mutual respect and mutual interest that unite us across borders and cultures, and recommit to working together to ensure the year ahead brings progress on the many shared challenges we face.
