Mdm Halimah attended Charles’ coronation in London as part of a visit from Thursday to Sunday.
She also attended a reception for overseas guests hosted by Charles, an event for Commonwealth leaders hosted by Commonwealth secretary-general Patricia Scotland and an event for small islands and developing states hosted by the UK government, said Singapore’s foreign affairs ministry (MFA) in a press statement on Saturday.
“During President Halimah’s interactions with UK personalities at the events, they spoke about the deep historical bond and collaborations over a wide range of sectors shared by the two countries,” said the ministry.
“Recent milestones, such as the entry into force of the UK-Singapore Digital Economy Agreement and signing of the memorandum of understanding on the UK-Singapore Green Economy Framework, are testament to the breadth and depth of the bilateral relationship.”
While in London, Mdm Halimah also met with Vietnam President Vo Van Thuong and Fiji President Ratu Wiliame Katonivere; where she took stock of bilateral relations and discussed global and regional developments, said MFA.
Mdm Halimah will attend a reception hosted for overseas Singaporeans in the UK before returning to Singapore on Sunday.
