OPENING OF THE NEW CONSULATE IN ADELAIDE

On 2 December 2011 Polish Ambassador to Australia H.E. Andrzej Jaroszyński inaugurated the new Consulate for the Republic of Poland in Adelaide, headed by Gosia Hill,  recently nominated Honorary Consul.

Among the officials to open the Consulate were Mr Daniel Gromann, Consul General, Mr Maciej Szymański, Director, Diaspora Liaison, and Mr Maciej Gajewski, Director, Consular Department at the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The ceremony was followed by cocktail reception at the Honorary Consul’s Residence.

To mark the occasion, Adelaide’s own young operatic soprano Grace Bawden, a finalist of Australia’s Got Talent, has performed a new song written and produced in collaboration with Polish performer, Maciej Miecznikowski “Under One Sun”. The song touches upon universal human values and friendships crossing national and transcontinental barriers. It is planned to be released in the coming weeks.

CONSULATE OF THE REPUBLIC OF POLAND IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA

The Australian Government has a long tradition of accepting Honorary Consuls, and over half of the many consular posts established in Australian State and Territory capital cities are headed by Honorary Consular Officers.

The Australian Government recognises that Honorary Consuls can make a substantial contribution to the conduct of individual bilateral relationships, especially in cases where the sending country does not maintain resident diplomatic representation in Australia. In many instances, an Honorary Consul’s personal connection with each side is particularly valuable.

The appointment of an Honorary Consul reflects a formal agreement between a sending government and a receiving government, as outlined in the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations (VCCR). The Australian Government’s role in reaching an agreement is undertaken by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). Once the arrangement is agreed, the Honorary Consul and the Department’s Protocol Branch become working partners in its implementation.
