Mr. Rudd (Hon. Kevin Rudd MP), the former Australian Prime Minister, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, and incumbent member of Congress, invited his Australian-Chinese friends to a dinner on February 2013 in Sydney to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Ms. Lynn YEH, the Managing Director of Homart Pharmaceuticals, and Jeffrey, the General Manager of Homart were invited to share in the joy and hearty dinner together with Mr. Rudd. The honoured guests included: Mr. Chris Bowen, the Minister of Higher Education and former Australian immigration minister, Mr. Martin Ferguson, the Australian Resources and Tourism Minister and a number of councillors from New South Wales’ provinces and cities.
Mr. Rudd is not only the former Australian Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Labour leader, but he is also a well-known television presenter, and the first Western Prime Minister who can speak and write Chinese fluently, therefore he is the favourite Australian Prime Minister of Chinese community. During the dinner, Mr. Rudd gave an extremely fluent and witty speech in Mandarin, and he also asked to be called “Lao Lu”, which amused all participants. Mr. Rudd stated that he understands that the Chinese New Year is as important as the Western Christmas Day, and the multi-field celebration held in Australia shows the great importance of the Chinese New Year in Australia, as well as the identity of the Chinese culture, which also highlights the profound friendship between China and Australia. Subsequently, Mr. Rudd made a toast, greeted all guests and asked all to support him in the Australian Labour Party Federal Election later this year. In addition to the delicious food, there were wonderful performances for all guests to enjoy such as folk dances of Chinese school students in Australia, Mandarin Reading etc.
