Chinese New Year 2016

ABC Bank hosts Chinese New Year celebrations- 6th February, 2016

ABC Bank hosted the Chinese community living in Kenya as they ushered in their new year at the Villa Rosa Kempinski. The event was organized by Guangdong Association, an umbrella body of Chinese business people in Kenya.

The Chinese New Year begins on 8th February, and is the Year of the Monkey, the ninth animal in the cycle. The next Year of the Monkey will be in 2028. Each Chinese New Year is characterised by one of 12 animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac. The Chinese zodiac is divided into 12 blocks (or houses) just like its western counterpart, but with the major difference being that each house has a time-length of one year instead of one month.

ABC Bank utilized the opportunity to engage the growing Chinese community in Kenya, with a view to cultivating mutually beneficial partnerships.
