A green Europe Day for us in Singapore. The European Union Ambassador to Singapore Iwona Piórko welcomed our Guest-of-Honour, Minister for Transport and Minister-in-charge of Trade Relations S.Iswaran at the Dairy Farm Nature Park. In partnership with NParks, Minister Iswaran, Ambassador Piórko, Ambassadors of EU Member States and Ukraine’s Ambassador to Singapore planted trees.  They were accompanied by youth as we mark 2022 as the European Year of Youth. Trees are both about a shared commitment for Green Recovery and they also symbolise hope for the future.
