State Welcome for the President of the Republic of Korea

Dame Patsy welcomed the President of the Republic of Korea, HE Moon Jae-In and his wife HE Kim Jung-sook to New Zealand during a ceremony at Government House in Auckland.

Tropical rainstorms did not dampen the enthusiasm of the New Zealand Defence Force, who performed a stirring haka under cover of a marquee.

After the welcome, an official call between Dame Patsy and President Moon took place, followed by a State Luncheon.
