Goff names new High Commissioner to Rarotonga
New Zealand’s next High Commissioner to Rarotonga will be career diplomat John Bryan, Foreign Minister Phil Goff announced today.
Mr Bryan is the former New Zealand High Commissioner to Niue, which like the Cook Islands shares a special relationship with New Zealand.
“New Zealand and the Cook Islands are bound by strong historical ties, common currency and citizenship. This year – the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Cook Islands constitution – is also an important milestone for the relationship between our two countries,” Mr Goff said.
Mr Bryan already has extensive experience of working in the Pacific. As well as having been High Commissioner in Niue, he has previously served in Apia and Suva. Other postings include Singapore, Bonn, New York and Brisbane.
Mr Bryan is currently Director of Property and Capital Management Division at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. He takes up his appointment in August, replacing Kurt Meyer.
