Martin Tate has agreed to serve another term as New Zealand’s Honorary Consul in Vladivostok.
On 23 May Ambassador Hamish Cooper formally handed over Martin’s letter of re-appointment at a reception at the Embassy to mark the visit to Russia of the New Zealand agri-business mission sponsored by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, in which Martin played a prominent role.
On behalf of the New Zealand government, Ambassador Cooper expressed deep appreciation for Martin’s service in the Russian Far East since 2001, with a focus on provision of consular services, and development of trade and economic links between the RFE and New Zealand.
