Raffi Shamir, the director of Media and Press for the Prime Minister’s Office, plans to leave his post after four years on the job to work with the government on public diplomacy projects.

“Rafi Shamir carried out his duties with professionalism and dedication and for this I thank him. I wish him success in his new post and am pleased that he will contribute his talents in the future as well,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.

Shamir said, “I thank Prime Minister Netanyahu for the privilege he afforded me to work for him and serve the State of Israel in recent years. I am pleased that I will have the opportunity to continue serving Israel’s public diplomacy also in my new post.”

He plans to work on public diplomacy projects with emphasis on Israel’s assistance to the economic development of the Palestinian Authority, Israel’s humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip and cooperation with other states in the region.
