GLF Vice Chairman Chester Crocker and Projects Director Amitav Banerji were in New York for part of the ‘high-level week’ of the United Nations General Assembly, coinciding with the presence there of a large number of Heads of State and Government. The Vice Chairman met with two African leaders within that window of opportunity. The Projects Director separately met with some partner organisations which promote common values and objectives, with a view to raising awareness of GLF as well as exploring possible project opportunities.
A number of GLF Members were also in New York during this period in the pursuit of other roles, some of which are of interest to GLF. The Projects Director made the fullest possible use of the opportunity to consult the visiting Members and benefit from their advice on countries and issues with which they are particularly familiar.
