President Waqa receives Canadian high commissioner Maddison

His Excellency President Baron Waqa received the high commissioner of Canada to Nauru at the formal presentation of credentials at the Office of the President today, 6 November.
 
High Commissioner Paul Maddison arrived at the government offices this morning and was met by the Secretary for Foreign Affairs and Trade Michael Aroi and presented copies of the Letter of Credence, before being received by the Commissioner of Police for the playing of the national anthems and inspection of the Police guard of honour.
 
Mr Maddison was then escorted to the Office of the President for the presentation of credentials.
 
The High Commissioner conveyed to President Waqa that the relationship between Canada and Nauru "holds great promise."
 
"Under the current government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau the aspirations of Nauruans and all pacific islanders in relation to some of the challenges you face with climate, but also with economic development, [and] also the opportunities that are there for you, Canada sees in our interest as well to be there alongside of you," Mr Maddison said.
 
The high commissioner then presented the letter of recall from his predecessor and his own Letter of Credence appointing him as high commissioner to Nauru.
 
President Waqa expressed pleasure in receiving Mr Maddison as high commissioner and hopes for a positive and engaging term.
 
"I hope your tenure will be a successful one for yourself as well as to engage with us and be more active in our relationship. I'm sure that will be the case. And while you're in office I know we'll be in constant contact with you so that we can exchange and collaborate in many things that are to come," President Waqa said.
 
One of those issues is climate change which the president underlined is very high on Nauru's agenda as well as for the rest of the pacific.
 
The high commissioner will continue courtesy calls on the speaker of parliament and cabinet ministers, and make site visits around Nauru.
 
Mr Maddison holds a Bachelor of Arts from the Royal Military College St. Jean Quebec and served in the Canadian Armed Forces for 37 years at the rank of vice admiral and from the position of commander Royal Canadian Navy.
