Visit to Australia by The President of The State of Israel
20 February 2020
I am pleased to announce His Excellency Mr Reuven (Ruvi) Rivlin, President of the State of Israel, will visit Australia from 21 to 27 February 2020.
This will be the second visit to Australia by President Rivlin, and his first as President. His visit follows on from the recent successful visit of Australia’s Governor–General to Israel earlier this year.
Australia and Israel have a long and respectful friendship. Our relationship is underpinned by our shared interest in democracy, open and outward-looking economies and strong historical people-to-people links.
The President’s visit will be an opportunity to build on this relationship, discuss further cooperation and help us forge new and lasting connections.
The President will also be joined by a delegation of senior Israeli business leaders, to help further our already strong trade and investment ties.
I look forward to welcoming President Rivlin to Australia.
