The Press - - Politics -

Career diplo­mat Nicci Sim­monds has been named high com­mis­sioner to Nauru. ‘‘New Zealand and Nauru en­joy a good re­la­tion­ship and the high com­mis­sioner will play an im­por­tant role in strength­en­ing our en­gage­ment around mu­tual in­ter­ests,’’ For­eign Min­is­ter Win­ston Pe­ters said. New Zealand con­trib­uted about $2.3 mil­lion to Nauru each year, fo­cus­ing on build­ing greater self-reliance by im­prov­ing ed­u­ca­tion, pro­tect­ing fish­eries and in­creas­ing ac­cess to re­new­able en­ergy.
