High Commissioner to New Zealand, Joy Kere has formally presented her Letters of Introduction to New Zealand Prime Minister John Key in Wellington, New Zealand.
A government statement today says the brief presentation ceremony at the Prime Minister’s Office yesterday was witnessed by Fiona Indu from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and External Trade, together with officials from the New Zealand Government.
High Commissioner Kere during her Commissioning in Honiara last month pledged to fulfill her assigned responsibilities as expected by the Government and people to ensure Solomon Islands benefit from its representation in New Zealand.
Mrs Kere is Solomon Island’s first ever female High Commissioner to head a foreign mission abroad.
She was permanent secretary to the Ministry of foreign Affairs and External Trade prior to her appointment as High Commissioner to New Zealand.
The Government in January this year opened a new Mission in Wellington to fulfill the country’s foreign relations policy of broadening its presence abroad and enhancing relations with New Zealand, as a close Pacific neighbor and developing partner.
