Reception to farewell Ms Jana Grilc and to welcome her successor Mr Andrej Kralj

On 6 July 2017 a reception was held at the residency of Slovenian Embassy to bid farewell to our dear colleague Ms Jana Grilc and to welcome her successor, a new Deputy Head of Mission Mr Andrej Kralj.

Jana will be missed not just as a Diplomat and a team member, but also as a friend. She established many new diplomatic, business and friendship relations and has contributed immensely to Embassy's projects and other activities in the last four years.

Andrej was warmly welcomed by new diplomatic colleagues, Honorary Consuls of the Republic of Slovenia and other Embassy's friends, and he will continue to nourish and strengthen great relations between Slovenia and other countries of accreditation.

We thank everyone who was here with us, especially our Honorary Consuls, Adrian Vatovec, Nevenka Golc-Clarke and Vice-Consul Mark Stariha who travelled from Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney especially for this occasion.
