Consul-General in Istanbul
Today I announce the appointment of Mr Tony Huber as Australia’s next Consul-General in Istanbul, Türkiye.
Türkiye and Australia have a productive and developing relationship. We maintain a substantial dialogue across a wide range of areas including cooperation on security, ANZAC Day commemorations, and participation in the G20 and MIKTA Forums.
Australia and Türkiye also share close people-to-people links. The 32,000 Australian residents born in Türkiye and 73,000 Australians claiming Turkish ancestry make a significant contribution to modern Australian society and culture.
Istanbul is world business hub connecting Europe and Asia and is a central point for our support to Australian interests in Türkiye.
Mr Huber is a career officer with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and was most recently Director, Non-Tariff Barrier Strategies Section.
Mr Huber has previously served overseas as Consul-General in Mumbai and had earlier postings to Canada, the United States and India.
I thank Acting Consul-General Ms Antoinette Merrillees for her contributions to advancing Australia’s interests in Istanbul.
