White wire in a light fitting would be neutral to fixture.

In your new light fitting, the black wire is typically the live (hot) wire, and the white wire is the neutral wire. In your ceiling, the black wire is also the live wire, and the red wire is the neutral wire.

Here’s how to connect them:

1. Connect the black wire from the light fitting to the black wire in the ceiling.
2. Connect the white wire from the light fitting to the red wire in the ceiling.

Always ensure the power is turned off at the circuit breaker before attempting any electrical work. If you’re unsure or uncomfortable with this task, it’s best to consult a licensed electrician for safety.
