Clinton, Cherie Blair to attend India Leadership Summit

Last updated on: October 30, 2006 17:31 IST

Former US president Bill Clinton and British Prime Minister Tony Blair's wife Cherie Blair will be attending the first India Leadership Summit beginning in New Delhi on November 29.

"Clinton will embark on a three-day speaking tour of India during the India Leadership Summit. Clinton's first destination will be Delhi on November 29. The tour will then continue to Bangalore on November 30 and Mumbai on December 1," a PRNewswire-Asianet release said in New Delhi.

Cherie Blair would also be attending the summit besides British human rights advocates Craig and Marc Keilburge, founders of Free The Children and three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominees.

The first India Leadership Summit will bring some of the most influential and acclaimed leaders in politics, business and social consciousness to India, the release said.

"It is an attempt to provide corporations and individuals with the oppurtunity to gain knowledge from the greatest leaders of our era and to personally experience someone as inspirational as Bill Clinton," said David Sersta, vice president, Business Development, of Power Within Inc, the company organising the event.
