Ms. Josette Sheeran, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Asia Society,
Distinguished Trustees and Members of the Society,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I thank my good friend Josette Sheeran for her leadership of the Asia Society since taking the helm last year. She made remarkable contributions to the United Nations when she was “one of us”, and she will always be a part of the UN family.
It is a pleasure to join you this evening.
You have come together to celebrate an array of remarkable Asians.
