I send my best wishes to those in the United States and around the world celebrating the Lunar New Year on February 1.

As we reflect on the year behind us and welcome the year ahead of us, the United States will continue to work to advance a peaceful and prosperous future. We welcome all nations and peoples to join us in the effort to build a better world for future generations.

May the Year of the Tiger bring opportunity, success, and good health to all.
