Happy New Year!
2013 has been an eventful year for the bilateral relations between France and Singapore, culminating with the visit of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to France last October which gave us the opportunity to step up the implementation of our strategic partnership signed during the visit of Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault in Singapore in October 2012, the third such partnership signed by Singapore with another country.
In 2014 we will strive towards the deepening of our links, especially in the economic field, as well as towards the strengthening of people-to-people exchanges. The embassy, which actively contributes on a daily basis to the strengthening of ties between our two countries, is at the full disposal of Singaporeans as well as of French citizens in Singapore. I am very pleased to announce that we will organise in 2014 an Open Door day at the embassy where you will get to meet and interact with staff from the various sections of the embassy.
Allow me to wish you, on behalf of myself and the staff from the French embassy in Singapore, all our very best wishes for 2014
Ambassador of France in Singapore
