CFOC Chinese New Year Virtual Events
Dear Members & Supporters,
I hope everyone has enjoyed the 2021 Chinese New Year break and St Valentine's Day. Our Co-Chairmen of the Conservative Friends of the Chinese (CFOC), Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP and Sheela Mackintosh-Stewart would like to wish a Happy Chinese New Year to British Chinese communities.
Happy Chinese New Year from Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP

Due to the current lockdown restrictions, we are unable to host a celebratory dinner this year. Instead, we will be hosting a series of three more exciting ‘In Conversation’ virtual events with two senior Cabinet Ministers and the Conservative candidate for the 2021 Manchester mayoral election as part of our Chinese New Year celebrations.
We would be absolutely delighted if you will save these dates in your diaries and join us for all 3 virtual events set out below:
