His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah, on Friday, presided over the launch of the Jordanian exhibition in the Gardens by the Bay area in the Singaporean capital.

The event was attended by Her Royal Highness Princess Rajwa Al Hussein.

Their Highnesses toured the exhibition facilities, which contribute to promoting tourism in Jordan and enhancing and expanding tourist exchanges between the two countries. Subsequently, His Highness participated in planting the first Jordanian olive tree at the Gardens by the Bay.

The exhibition provides visitors to Gardens by the Bay with the opportunity to explore models of Jordan's archaeological sites, view a photo exhibition of these historical sites, and review mosaic pieces from the Church of St. Stephen in Um Al-Rasas.

The exhibition also showcases Jordan's wild herbs, products from the Dead Sea, and a diverse collection of woven wool pieces from the Bani Hamida Women's Association and the Jordan River Foundation, reflecting aspects of Jordan's cultural heritage.

The planting of unique trees, flowers, and plants in Singapore's gardens symbolizes the strengthening and consolidation of its relationships with countries worldwide, enriching the environmental and natural inventory.

The Jordanian Embassy in Singapore organizes the exhibition for an entire month in collaboration with the Singapore Tourism Board and the Royal Botanic Gardens, in partnership with Gardens by the Bay.

Gardens by the Bay is one of the largest parks in Singapore, welcoming approximately 14 million visitors annually. The park focuses on showcasing environmental technologies, featuring two large plant conservatories from different climates and seasonal flower displays.

On the sidelines of the event, memoranda of understanding were signed: the first between Jordan Tourism Board and the National Association of Travel Agents in Singapore, and the second between the Royal Botanic Garden and Gardens by the Bay.

The launch event was attended by the Jordanian Ambassador to Singapore, Samer Al-Naber.
