Australia and New Zealand are more than neighbours – shared values, a history of collaboration, and a degree of economic integration that is admired around the world make us partners whose future and prosperity are intimately linked. The strength of the bilateral relationship has been built on the good work of many, and foremost among the organisations making an important contribution is the Australia New Zealand Leadership Forum (ANZLF).
Outgoing Driver to the High Commissioner, David Mos shares some thoughts about his time as a Diplomatic driver.
My journey with the Australian High Commission started with a few less than elegant practice launches in the Diplomatic car, followed by a guided visit to the High Commissioner’s residence. I returned to the Chancery to take the High Commissioner to a lunch he was attending and at that moment my driver training was complete – I was now on my own.
