Celebrating International Leadership and Achievement We are pleased to announce that Ronnie C. Chan, Chairman of Hang Lung Properties Limited, will receive the 2018 Dwight D. Eisenhower Global Leadership Award for his role as a business-statesman and his life-long commitment to philanthropy, the advancement of education and building bridges in the pursuit of global stability. BCIU will also acknowledge Laura and George W. Bush’s leadership in improving global public health, particularly their work, which has received strong bipartisan support, in fighting the global AIDS pandemic. Millions of lives have been extended through the PEPFAR initiative established in 2003. PEPFAR also served to mobilize so many like-minded private philanthropic initiatives and partnerships. BCIU will present the Eisenhower Global Citizenship Award to PEPFAR, which will be accepted by Ambassador Deborah L. Birx that evening. Since 1984, BCIU members and special guests have assembled annually in New York to celebrate partnerships that promote and encourage international trade and diplomacy. Launched in 2003, the Dwight D. Eisenhower Global Leadership Award has recognized distinguished members of the international business community who embody outstanding leadership and achievement in the international arena. Gala attendees include leaders in media, diplomacy, culture, philanthropy and business.
