UIA Annual Dinner 2019 in Hong Kong E-mail

The 2019 UIA Hong Kong – Keren Hayesod campaign kicked off to an enthusiastic start as 180 friends and supporters convened at the Hong Kong Jewish Community Centre for the “UIA Solidarity and Appeal” evening on 14 March.

Israel’s Consul-General to Hong Kong, Mrs. Ahuva Spieler and Irit Barash, Director of UIA Israel graced the occasion with their presence, as well as all UIA Directors and leadership, led by Co-Chairs Daniel Green and Philippe Bera. The event was successfully led by Daniel Kirwin, UIA Director.

The guest speaker for the evening was Ambassador Ron Prosor, Israel’s highest-ranking diplomat and a well-established writer, and newspaper columnist.

Ambassador Prosor was introduced by Philippe Bera, Co-Chair of UIA Hong Kong.

Ambassador Prosor has served Israel in multiple roles, most notably as Israel’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations from 2011 to 2015.

Ambassador Prosor gave an intriguing and illuminating description of his tenure as Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations and exemplified how he chose to take a proactive, innovative and realistic course of action in representing Israel. Just one highlight of his successful tenure to the United Nations was his becoming, in 2014, the first Israeli diplomat nominated to supervise UN elections.
