On October 29, 2019, members of our firm’s Australia Desk attended a unique event organized by the Zionist Federation of Australia in partnership with the Israel Australia Chamber of Commerce. The event, celebrating the Israel-Australia relationship, featured a bipartisan Australian delegation, led by The Honorable John Howard OM AC, former Prime Minister of Australia and great friend to the State of Israel. The participants included additional distinguished guests, such as The Honorable Alexander Downer AC, former Foreign Minister of Australia and The Honorable Wayne Swan, former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia. On the Israeli side, special guests included Isaac Herzog, Chairman of the Jewish Agency for Israel and Major General (Ret.) Ido Nehoshtan, Chairman of the Israel Australia Chamber of Commerce.
Enclosed are a couple of snapshots of our Australia Desk team getting up close with the former Prime Minister.
