According to Jan Lund, Ellemann-Jensen presented an intelligent and interesting speech to the party, where he touched many different topics. He talked about his views on the world situation in 1984 when he, as a Danish Foreign Minister gave speeches at DABS’ founding meeting, and he talked about his vision of the world today.
Jan Lund explains that Uffe Ellemann-Jensen has played a special role for the Danish Business Association of Singapore. He was present at the general meeting 25 years ago and he has also participated in events with them since.
