Hi Manpreet Kaur,
This is just as in English -
L'année qui commence = The year that's starting /the coming year
promet d'être = promises to be
The verb promettre is the first verb that agrees with the subject 'l'année qui commence'. The second verb takes the infinitive.
Also, note the 'de' before être.
