On Monday 23 September, farewell audiences were held at the Royal Palace of Stockholm for China's ambassador H.E. Mr Lan Lijun and Japan's ambassador H.E. Mr Yoshiki Watanabe.
Just as an ambassador is received by The King on assuming his or her position in Sweden at a formal audience, a similar — albeit somewhat less formal — meeting is also held when the ambassador returns home again. Find out more about formal audiences here.
