HUNTSMAN TO GIVE FIRST MAJOR FOREIGN POLICY ADDRESS TO WORLD AFFAIRS COUNCIL OF NH AT SOUTHERN NEW HAMPSHIRE UNIVERSITY

Jon Huntsman, former U.S. Ambassador to Singapore and most recently, China, will address the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire at Southern New Hampshire University on Monday, October 10 at 11 a.m. in Walker Auditorium. Huntsman, who also previously served as the Governor of Utah, will roll out his foreign policy agenda as a candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.

"Our mission is to promote understanding of world affairs around the state and that goal is never more critical than in a Presidential Primary year," said Anna H. Berry, the Executive Director of the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire, a non-profit, non-partisan organization. 


"In the last midterm election, less than 10 percent of Americans reported considering foreign policy when voting, despite the fact that domestic issues are increasingly linked with world affairs.

We hope that by offering a platform for candidates, experts, and the public to discuss foreign policy, voters will be better educated on how global issues affect their lives heading to the ballot box next year.”

Huntsman will be joined by Tom Ridge, former Secretary of Homeland Security and former Governor of Pennsylvania, who recently endorsed Huntsman's campaign. Huntsman's address will be followed by time for questions from members of the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire. 

The program kicks off the Council's series, "Primary Concerns: Foreign Policy Conversations with the Candidates." As part of a national World Affairs Councils of America effort, the Council is also holding a four-part series on the most critical foreign policy issues at the 2012 ballot box featuring experts on the Middle East; China; Revolution, Regime Change and Democracy Abroad; and the Global Economy.
