French-Singaporean relations are excellent and dense in numerous fields. They are now maintained within the framework of a common declaration on strategic partnership, signed on 18 October 2012, during the official visit of the Prime Minister in Singapore.

The President of the Republic of Singapore, Mr Tony Tan, visited France from 17 to 23 May. This visit took place as France and Singapore celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of their diplomatic relations this year. France is one of the first thirteen countries which recognized the independence of Singapore in 1965.
