Nepali Ambassador to Israel Dr Anjan Shakya has bagged the ‘Ambassador of the Year award 2019-20’.
The Ambassadors Club of Israel honored Dr Shakya with the award.
According to the Club, she is reportedly the first ambassador of an Asian country to receive the award.
She was appointed Ambassador to Israel in February 2019.
Dr Shakya has been instrumental in promoting bilateral relations and trade between Israel and Nepal during her tenure so far.
A trade and business agreement was signed between Nepal-Israel Chamber of Commerce and Israel Chamber of Commerce last week.
She also worked to correct a hoarding board with world highlights in the Dead Sea shore, which read that the world’s highest mountain was located in China.
Since, then, it shows that Mt Sagaramatha or Everest lies in Nepal, along with a flag of Nepal.
