MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT CLINTON
It is my pleasure to announce the inaugural meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative to be held September 15-17, 2005, in New York City. This event, which will bring together King Abdullah II, President Leonel Fernandez Reyna, President Olusegun Obasanjo, Prime Minister Tony Blair, Secretary General Kofi Annan, Vice Premier Shimon Peres, Dr. Hernando de Soto, Rupert Murdoch, Richard Parsons, and an array of other distinguished and dedicated leaders, will coincide with and complement this fall's Millennium Summit of the U.N. General Assembly.
This nonpartisan conference will concentrate a diverse and select group of current and former heads of state, business leaders, noteworthy academicians, and key NGO representatives to identify immediate and pragmatic solutions to some of the worlds most pressing problems. The workshops will focus on how to reduce poverty; use religion as a force for reconciliation and conflict resolution; implement new business strategies and technologies to combat climate change; and strengthen governance. Our meeting will emphasize dynamic group interaction to identify an agenda we can actually implement.
By identifying specific ways to address the challenges of our time and asking each participant to make a specific commitment to take action in one of the areas discussed, I believe this Initiative will prove to be a unique and effective forum for leaders and their communities around the world. What we begin during three days this September will continue throughout the year to come with coordinated implementation of our agenda.
We have an opportunity we can not afford to pass up--in just three days, we can begin to make a world of difference.
With best wishes,
EX-President Clinton perhaps... Although even that is "stretching" it. Even when he was elected to office he was not Presidential.... And only could call himself that when hillary was feeling generous.
Non-partisan my posterior.... anyone attending is going to be partisan as heck..... Anti-conservative and anti-American. Pro-communist and Pro-criminal.
This sounds scarier than a Bildeberger barbeque. I wonder why Clinton sounds so confident their agenda will be implemented?
Anyhow, it's clear that BC doesn't look on himself as an ex-POTUS, but rather he has merely 'graduated' from that post and is now running for President of the World.
