  • Media release

Today I am pleased to announce the appointment of five highly qualified individuals to lead Australia's posts in Cambodia, Honolulu, Morocco, Nepal and Vanuatu.  

I am also pleased to announce the appointment of Ms Amanda McGregor as Australia’s next Special Representative on Afghanistan.

Based in Qatar, Ms McGregor will work with like-minded countries to call out the Taliban on its abuse of human rights and support the people of Afghanistan.

Our diplomats are the driver of Australia's engagement with the world. They build influence and prosecute Australia's national interests abroad.

These individuals will take up the following positions:

I thank the outgoing heads of mission, consul-general and the former Special Representative on Afghanistan for their contributions to advancing Australia's interests.
