President George W. Bush to speak to USGLC on May 31

The U.S. Global Leadership Campaign will host the President of the United States to deliver remarks on the United States International Development Agenda. President George W. Bush’s remarks will be delivered in advance of his attendance at the upcoming G-8 Summit in Heiligendamm, Germany, on June 5-8. This is an invitation only event.

There are rumors that he will include a major education initiative in the speech.

There are eight main items on the summit agenda, ranging from breaking down international trade barriers to combatting poverty in Africa and moving towards a replacement for the Kyoto treaty on climate change that expires in 2012.

The U.S. Global Leadership Campaign (USGLC) is a broad-based, nationwide coalition of businesses, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and community leaders that advocates for a strong U.S. International Affairs Budget. The International Affairs Budget provides America with the fundamental tools to meet the global challenges of the 21st century and is critical to ensuring our national security, building economic prosperity, and strengthening humanitarian values.
