As of New Year’s Eve, national leaders and others were continuing to exchange greetings, and also to issue statements to the public at large on the occasion of the old year passing, and prospects for 2019. President Donald Trump gave his message in an exclusive interview on the Fox TV New Year’s Eve special last night, and released two short videos on twitter.
Early yesterday, Chinese President Xi Jinping gave his annual New Year’s address, which he concluded by sending, “Best wishes to the world!” He reviewed leading projects within China (e.g., the Hong Kong-Macao-Zhuhai Bridge and others,) which he said were accomplished by people who are, “trailblazers of the new era,” and he spoke about lifting 10 million people out of poverty in 2018. He also addressed working for new foreign relations based on justice and peace, so that, “As we ring in the New Year, let’s embrace 2019 with confidence and anticipation.”
