PRESS RELEASE BY THE OFFICE OF THE SPEAKER: Australian High Commissioner pays farewell call on Speaker An?lu Farrugia

This morning High Commissioner of the Commonwealth of Australia Jane Elspeth Lambert paid a farewell visit on Speaker An?lu Farrugia.

Speaker Farrugia expressed his gratitude to High Commissioner Lambert for all her hard work during her tenure of office in Malta, in order to enhance the very close relations that exist between Malta and Australia.

The two dignitaries discussed issues of mutual interest, particularly the Maltese Diaspora in Australia, which by far is the largest population of Maltese living abroad. They also highlighted the cooperation between the two Parliaments.

Reference was also made to CHOGM 2015, which was organised in Malta last November and attended by the Australian Prime Minister.
