SINGAPORE, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Tony Blair, Prime Minister of
Great Britain and Northern Ireland from 1997-2007, will travel to Malaysia &
Singapore in April 2010 to head-up an impressive global speaker line-up at the
2010 National Achievers Congress. Now in its 18th year, the Congress is a
platform for learning and development that over the years has presented former
US President Bill Clinton, Robert Kiyosaki, Michael Porter and many others to
thousands of Malaysians and Singaporeans. The Congress, which takes place in
Kuala Lumpur and then in Singapore several days later, generally attracts
6000-7000 delegates who spend three days learning from, and being inspired by,
some of the world's greatest leaders and entrepreneurs.
Tony Blair will first speak at the National Achievers Congress in Kuala
Lumpur (23-25th April) and then travel south for the Singapore National
Achievers Congress (27-29th April). He no doubt has fond memories of Singapore
- being the country that he travelled to in July 2005, to hear the news that
London had been selected by the International Olympic Committee to be the host
of the 2012 Olympic Games.
Blair will be taking time away from his current role in the Middle East,
where he is working for the USA, UN, Russia and EU as the Quartet
Representative, helping the Palestinians to prepare for statehood as part of
the international community's effort to secure peace.
Tony Blair served as Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
from May 1997 to June 2007. He was also the leader of Britain's Labour Party
from 1994 to 2007. He continues to be active in public life, with many
interests. He launched the Tony Blair Faith Foundation to promote respect and
understanding of and between the major religions and to make the case for
faith as a force for good in the modern world. The foundation works with
Buddhists, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Jews, and Hindus. Blair believes that
faith will have great influence in how the challenges that globalisation
presents will be met. Part of the Foundation's role is to mobilise faith
communities to work together in pursuit of the Millennium Development Goals to
tackle global poverty and conflict.
Blair is also a keen supporter of issues around Africa and climate change.
He is a member of the Africa Progress Panel and eighteen months ago launched
the 'Breaking the Climate Deadlock Initiative' through which he is working
with world leaders to set the world on a new path to a low carbon future.
Richard Tan, Chief Executive Officer, Success Resources, is responsible
for bringing Tony Blair to Malaysia and Singapore "Tony Blair is respected as
a great leader, a great visionary and a man with significant purpose in his
life. During his ten years as Prime Minister, he transformed Britain's public
services through a programme of investment and reform in schools and hospitals,
resulting in more children achieving better school results and more people
receiving faster access to health care, with improved survival rates for
cancer and coronary heart disease. His achievements are outstanding and we
know that what he has to say at the National Achievers Congress will be of
significant interest to thousands of Malaysians and Singaporeans".
