Ambassador Awards 2019
On 6 Dec 2019 the Australian Embassy held its Annual Australian Alumni Celebration, this time incorporating an inaugural Ambassador Awards event to celebrate the achievements of our Lao Australian Alumni.
Lao Australian Alumni are a visible benefit of the unbroken diplomatic relations between both nations. Over the past twenty-five years more than 1,300 men and women have returned from Australia with tertiary qualifications. These alumni make significant contributions to Lao national development in a range of sectors including government, the private and non-government organisations both national and international.
The Australian Ambassador, H.E. Mr Jean-Bernard Carrasco, was pleased to award the winners of the following categories:
Ambassador Award: Innovation and Initiative
Ambassador Award: Women in Leadership
Ambassador Award: Male Champion of Change
Ambassador Awards: Bilateral Contribution
The Australia Embassy in Lao PDR is pleased to observe the achievements from Australia’s investment in Lao human resources being enjoyed by the wider Lao community.
