In pictures: At CGI and the UN

It has been a busy week in New York City, as we participated in the Clinton Global Initiative and meetings at the United Nations aimed at keeping road safety high on the international agenda. President Bill Clinton invited Global Road Safety Ambassador Michelle Yeoh on stage at his CGI annual meeting, as he highlighted progress by the FIA Foundation in supporting the AIP Foundation's helmet safety work in Vietnam (work also supported by Johnson & Johnson through the Road Safety Fund) and the UPS Foundation announced it would also enter a new partnership with AIP Foundation for its 'Helmets for Kid's' initiative. Meanwhile at the United Nations, where President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil committed her government to supporting the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety in her address to the UN General Assembly (see at 18m 20s) following the FIA & IDB's road safety advocacy in Brazil, Michelle Yeoh also met with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. Also at UN HQ the Road Safety Fund attended the first open meeting of the new High Level Panel on the post-2015 sustainable development agenda.
