The Princess has been appointed as the UN Secretary-Generals's Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development,

The Princess will not only advice the SG but also will travel the globe extensively on behalve of th UN to
promote the use of inclusive financial services.

Newspaper Telegraf has the new UN job of the princess as the main headline on their cover. Apparently she will try to make financial services more accesible for everybody, esp. in developing countries. The newspaper will have an interview with the princess tomorrow btw (on this topic).

Interesting to see that the princess takes on a new UN job, does anybody know if she is installed for a limited amount of years? I thought that after the last one she said it was nice to focus more on the Netherlands and on her family.

Among the impressive list of guests to attend the Clinton Global Initiative tonight is,ofcourse,President Barack Obama,
Al Gore,TRH CP Haakon and Mette Marit,Princess Christina of Spain,Queen Rania,Brad Pitt,Ricky Martin,Barbra Streisand etc etc...

The speech by HRH will be posted here asap.:smile:

Good to see Maxima getting a position such as this. She has been quite active in the field even after she got married which was really good IMO.
Im not too sure how she will manage to be an advisor while back home, I always thought such positions would require her to be in New York, it will be interesting to see, maybe more visits to New York.

She hardly has to go to New York to promote inclusive financial services,allthough Wall Street and some bankers are in need of some sound & solid advice and,as many have too much of an air again,would need someone to clabber these s***eating grins of their selfindulgent faces,yes,but other then that NYC thrives on money it doesn't own..:tongue:.No,the work she does is done globally and maybe NYC two or three times a year to discuss matters in meetings with the SG personally,but other then that,there's the phone,pc and other satellite connected possibilities for direct talks on urgent matters.It's not a regular 9 to 5 office job that can only be done from an office at the UN HQ,besides,more and more people work from home,regardless where their companies HQ is,as I said,her work is global,so we will find her flying all over on scheduled flights the next year or so,at last one year tho.The Princess will have a very tight schedule,her being a mother of three,her work at home and the work for the UN,it's going to be tough for her,but a challenge she couldn't possibly have rejected,and she didn't say yes instantly either knowing the consequences of being away from home very often and her role here as wife,mother and HRH Princess of The Netherlands.

First speech by HRH in her new function as Secretary General's Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance
at the annual Clinton Global Initiative Finance Dinner last night:

Congratulations to Princess Maxima! This is a wonderful opportunity, and the Princess will make an excellent Special Advocate. She brings extensive knowledge and diplomatic skills to this position with her. She is truly qualified, and I believe that she will do an incredible job.

I am so disappointed to hear that the Clintons' website featured the wrong person on their website when they were attempting to list a photo of Maxima. :bang: Hopefully, this has been fixed.

Bevinda 09-23-2009 10:16 AM

Audio for speech in NY?
 
Is there an audio/video clip for Princess Maxima's speech at the Clinton Global Initiative last night?

4Pam 09-23-2009 10:17 AM
