Foreign Affairs Minister, Nanaia Mahuta, today announced the appointment of Kathryn Beckett as New Zealand’s next Ambassador to Argentina.
“As our next Ambassador, Ms Beckett will be integral to furthering our strong relationship with Argentina and encouraging greater trade and business links between our countries,” Ms Mahuta said.
Ms Beckett has most recently served as the Unit Manager of the United Nations, Human Rights and Commonwealth Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. She has also served as Counsellor at the New Zealand High Commission in Vanuatu (she is pictured during her posting to Vanuatu) and as First Secretary at the New Zealand Embassy in Viet Nam.
In addition to Argentina, Ms Beckett will also be accredited to Uruguay and Paraguay.
She will be based at New Zealand’s Embassy in Buenos Aires and takes up her position in April.
