Christmas is almost upon us. For me, this is a welcome break from my work, both here and abroad. For my friends and colleagues, I hope this is a time for celebration and relaxation and a time to reflect on, what will come to be seen as, a momentous year. I'm looking forward with hope and optimism to the year ahead, and sincerely assure you all of my ongoing commtment to tackling, head on, the challenges that 2017 will, no doubt, throw at us, whatever they may be.
Thank you so much for all your support. Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and Seasons Greetings to all of you. I wish you all that I wish for myself Not least, a happy, healthy and peaceful 2017 for you and those dear to you.
