The Chinese New Year, also known as the Lunar New Year — and more commonly known as the Spring Festival (Chūnjié) in China —has become one of the world's top five most celebrated festivals. It isn't just celebrated in China. Other East Asian and Southeast Asian countries — such as Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Mauritius and the Philippines — celebrate, as well. 

The Ministry of Arts and Culture and the Municipality of Port Louis are collaborating with the Chinese Embassy in Mauritius and the China Cultural Centre to celebrate the Chinese New Year 2018 and to mark the 50th anniversary celebrations of Mauritius’s accession to Independence. In this context, a China Week comprising various activities will kick off on 10 February 2018.
