Corporate Affairs Director, SABMiller plc
On 21 January I was in Washington for a meeting called by the President of the World Bank, Bob Zoellick, and his Managing Director, the former Nigerian Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
The week before last I spent a couple of days in Uganda with a party that included two MPs from the House of Commons International Development Select Committee. As guests of SABMiller’s Ugandan subsidiary, Nile Breweries, we visited the brewery site in Jinja and a community health programme we help to support in Katakwi Province in the north of the country.
This week is World Water Week, an annual event in which the scientific, business, policy and civic sectors get together in Stockholm to address the planet's most urgent water-related problems.
