In 2007, she helped to bring in an exhibition at the National Museum on Greek antiques from the Louvre Museum (from December 2007 to March 2008).
Subsequently, through the foundation, she supported the launch of the first cultural European season, driven by France, within the context of the presidency of the European Union, “Encore !”, which takes place in Singapore with around 50 cultural events, from May to December 2008. The Foundation has, without fail, renewed its support in 2009 and 2010 to the European cultural season which presents more than 150 European events every year.
