New Australian High Commissioner-designate arrives in Niue
The new Australian High Commissioner-designate has arrived in Niue and is undergoing 14 days of quarantine.
Prior to arriving in Niue, she was in managed isolation for 14 days in New Zealand.
BCN News has been reliably informed that the Australian High Commissioner-designate will be starting work on 24th August where she is expected to present her credentials to the Premier of Niue Hon. Dalton Tagelagi.
We understand that she will initially be based in the New Zealand Chancery at Tapeu. The new Australian High Commission in Alofi is expected to be open later this year as confirmed by the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison in his condolences message on the passing of the former Premier Sir Toke Talagi
