Ambassador Daunivalu Replaces Ambassador Nazhat Shameem Khan As Fiji’s New Ambassador And Permanent Representative To The United Nations Offices In Geneva

Fiji’s new Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the United Nations Offices in Geneva, Switzerland, Ambassador Luke Daunivalu, officially took up his appointment after presenting credentials to the Director-General of the United Nations Office at Geneva on Tuesday 7 June, 2022.

Ambassador Daunivalu was appointed to his new role by the #FijianGovernment following the departure of Ambassador Nazhat Shameem Khan in March this year for the International Criminal Court.
Mr Daunivalu previously served as Fiji’s High Commissioner to Australia.
While Daunivalu’s immediate past role required his focus on strengthening bilateral relations between #Fiji and Australia, his new assignment demands a much wider scope of engagement with UN Member States and other international organisations in Geneva.
Having served at Fiji’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations in New York on two separate occasions in the past, Ambassador Daunivalu is well acquitted to the rigors of multilateral work.
In addition to dealing with the UN and other international organisations in Geneva, the work of the Fijian Mission in Geneva has expanded in the past year to cover the responsibilities formerly undertaken by the Embassy in Brussels.
With the support of four other Diplomats, the Mission in Geneva has been able to effectively discharge its task over the past years.
