The ceremony was graced by the performance of a youth string quartet representing the region of Asia, Europe (Poland) and the Pacific.

The culinary setting, highly appreciated by the guests, was provided by master chefs visiting Singapore as part of a project by the National Agricultural Support Center in connection with the International Hotel Food Asia Fair.

Guests had also the opportunity to see the “Poland 2.0” exhibition displayed in the hotel’s foyer, the video summarizing the last year of Polish-Singapore relations and read the four-page supplement “Focus on Poland” dedicated to the Polish export and investment offer, which was published in the Singaporean financial newspaper the Business Times on the day of the event.

Both the organization of the reception and the publication of the special supplement “Focus on Poland” were supported by the significant involvement of the embassy’s partners.
