CALL it fruit diplomacy: a large poster showing the prime ministers of Singapore and Malaysia enjoying a plate of Malaysian fruit features prominently at a new bazaar at Sultan Gate, in Beach Road.

The bustling 5,100 sq ft Agrobazaar houses a grocery store, cafe and rooftop restaurant.

It will further reinforce Singapore as a key market for Malaysia's agro-food products, said Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak at its official opening yesterday.
