Chinese New Year Celebration at Obi Site: Harmony in Cultural Diversity

11 February 2024

The Chinese New Year celebration at Harita Nickel is a vibrant and meaningful cultural event, bringing together traditions, culinary delights, and traditional arts to mark the start of the year. On February 10, 2024, Harita Nickel employees rejoiced in this festive occasion, embracing the richness of Chinese culture.

The Year of the Wooden Dragon celebration fostered unity and cultural harmony. Chinese New Year festivities were enjoyed throughout all business units, featuring collaborative activities with overseas Chinese workers. Vibrant red lanterns with gold accents embellished offices and canteens, enhancing the festive mood.

At PT Halmahera Persada Lygend (HPL), the Chinese New Year celebration took place at the Activity Center building. The event saw the participation of expats, translators, as well as representatives from management.

The events included Tuan Nian Fan, a communal meal symbolizing the familial bond among employees. The dragon dance performance thought to bring luck and prosperity, was uniquely performed by skilled local employees. Besides the Activity Center, the Dragon Dance was also showcased in various work areas of HPL that night.

The excitement of the event culminated in fireworks that lit up the sky of Obi Island. In this case, fireworks are not only entertainment, but also a symbol of glory and new hope for the New Year.

Meanwhile, Chinese New Year celebrations were also held in other Harita Nickel business lines, such as PT Megah Surya Pertiwi (MSP) and PT Halmahera Jaya Feronikel (HJF), with nuances not much different from the celebrations at HPL.

The cultural diversity within the Harita community enriches Chinese New Year celebrations, highlighting the value of fostering inclusivity and harmony in the workplace. Harita Nickel recognizes that cultural differences, evident in the participation of both local and foreign workers, are not barriers but rather strengths that contribute to the company's progress.
