Singapore: French President Francois Hollande arrived in Singapore, the first leg in the final foreign tour of his 5 year term, and will go on to Malaysia and Indonesia. The tour in Jakarta is dominated by economic and defence issues and is aimed mainly at strengthening ties with a region with high economic potential, according to the presidential palace.
Hollande has made some 230 international trips since 2012 but has only one other major commitment abroad before his term ends in mid-May: the post-Brexit European summit in Brussels on 29 April. Hollande’s tour ends Wednesday in Indonesia, where he will make the first visit by a French head of state since Francois Mitterrand in 1986.
