Celebrating 4th of July Featured

Ambassador of the USA in New Zealand, Tom Udall urged the audience to get out and cheer for America’s champion team daring the FIFA Women’s World Cup events here when he hosted a 4 July function last week. Travel and tourism representatives were among guests at the Hilton to celebrate the 247th Anniversary of the USA. 

Udall said he was looking forward to having tens of thousands of US soccer supporters in New Zealand over the next few weeks and promised if Kiwis gave the US their backing he would do the same for the NZ team. On a more serious note he also highlighted collaborations in the Pacific and other aspects of the close relationship between the US and New Zealand.

Meanwhile, Delta Air Lines distributed some 4th of July sweetness to the trade in the form of cupcakes. It served as a bit of comfort food before the airline starts services in New Zealand later this year with its Delta Comfort+.
