The New Zealand United States Council offers its congratulations to Rosemary Banks on her appointment to be New Zealand Ambassador to the United States.

The Council’s chairman, Leon Grice, said "it is an important time in the bilateral relationship as we continue to build off recent wins, such as the KIWI Act and the strong relationships we have politically, economically and culturally.
