The celebration of the Swiss Spring Festival 2015 organized by the Swiss Business Council in Abu Dhabi was once again a great success. The event was a unique occasion for the SBC members and friends to celebrate spring in a warm and vibrant Swiss atmosphere with Swiss artists and exquisite Swiss food. The Ambassador of Switzerland to the UAE, H.E. Mrs. Andrea Reichlin, stated that “Swiss citizens are key contributors to the presence and visibility of Switzerland in the UAE, its culture at large and its knowhow”. The ambassador continued by saying that “Despite its relatively small size, Switzerland is successful in terms of innovation achievements and our country is continuously working with partners – among them the UAE - to make the world a better place to live”. In the spirit of this Spring Festival, she concluded that “Even in permanent sunshine locations like Abu Dhabi, spring comes along, bringing with it more daylight. Spring is equivalent to renewed vitality. There is freshness all around, paving the way for new friendships and partnerships”.
