The British Chinese Project Christmas Party at The House of Commons

Date

Thursday, 18 December, 2008

Content Political integration group, the British Chinese Project, of which I am an executive, held their Christmas party at the House of Commons on the 16th December. As Christmas parties go, it was less santa suits and sequins and more business suits and speeches.

But that's ok. Positive, ground breaking developments aren't always expected, although they are welcome and the BC Project's aims in integrating more British Chinese people into politics is still very much an ongoing, continual and long term aim.

Events like the Christmas party, generously sponsored by Christine Lee & Co, keep the campaign fresh in the forefront of people's minds, both in the Chinese communty and in the Government's political offices.

Like any event, it also serves to get individuals networking and this will hopefully foster communications to create meaningful relationships in furthering the integration of British Chinese into politics.
