When you think Chinese New Year, what’s the first animal that comes to mind? My guess is that for many that would be a dragon. Possibly because that is an animal generally associated with China, next to the panda.

This is really good news, but maybe not exactly yet, since their features are still in its infancy. But we have a good feeling that  in the  future it can work well.
