Cocktail receptions in both Melbourne and Sydney were held to farewell Nili Shalev, the Israel Trade Commissioner, who is leaving Australia after four wonderful years. The Melbourne reception was held at the offices of Clayton Utz with approximately 45 guests attending. The Sydney reception was kindly hosted by Gary Zamel with approximately 70 guests attending.
Nili has been an outstanding advocate for promoting closer bilateral relations between Australia and Israel and has achieved numerous successes. She is a tireless ambassador for Israel and, on her return, will remain a strong supporter of Australia.
