For some reason NZ has a Consul General in Hawaii. Their main job appears to be working with Palau, Micronesia and the Marshall Islands, so I wonder why they are not located on one of those islands.
But even if you do need one in Hawaii, do they really need a $6.2 luxury home?
I didn’t have a problem with the New York apartment for $11 million because we have a major mission in New York, and apartments there are hideously expensive, and it will be used for diplomatic meetings and receptions.
But I really can’t see why you need that in Hawaii? It looks wasteful. It has heated pools, waterfalls and marble.
