President Rivlin  hosted at his residence around 20 Israeli ambassadors and diplomatic mission heads. Canberra-based Shmuel Ben-Shmuel and Israel’s ambassador to New Zealand Yosef Livne attended the meeting

The President welcomed them and thanked them for their work in representing the State of Israel saying: “The friendly relationship between Israel and the rising powers in Asia represents an economic and strategic opportunity for both sides.  As a state which seeks new markets for trade, the connection with Asia is more important than ever to Israel.  Israel is more and more turning to face the East, we are witnessing cross-fertilization in the fields of education, industry, tourism, and security.  Experts, tourists, and politicians visit in each direction, learning and proposing ideas, and I have no doubt that you play a central role in that.”
