CHINESE ambassador Huang Yong hopes Fiji's democratic process this year will be smooth and successful.

Speaking during the 2014 Chinese new year, the year of the horse reception last week, Mr Huang said this year was an exciting one for Fiji.

"In 2014, Fiji will have its first election in a decade under the new Constitution. The people of Fiji will define their own destiny through their solemn rights," he said.

"As the year of the horse is galloping in, let's wish the democratic process in Fiji is smooth and successful."

He said the horse in Chinese culture represented valour, hard work, strength and success.

He said 2014 was also an important year for China in terms of domestic agenda.

"The Chinese Government has recently unveiled an overall plan on comprehensively deepening reform, a grand blueprint for future development with a view of achieving the Chinese dream. The year 2014 is the starting year for the endeavour."

He extended greetings to everyone who supported the work of the Chinese Embassy in the past year.

"Although China and Fiji are separated by vast oceans, the people to people exchanges and friendship are never hindered by geography."
