He also extended congratulations to the newly-elected Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and hoped that the relations between the two countries would bear more fruits in the coming time, especially when the two sides are planning to establish the “Comprehensive Strategic Partnership” in 2023 on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations.

Ambassador Robyn Mudie pledged she will make further contribution to the bilateral ties and support for cooperation between the Public Security Ministry and Australian security and law enforcement agencies for national security of the two countries, and prosperity and mutual interests of the two nations.
