Presentation to Kofi Annan

In 2010, Ambassador Quinn traveled to Accra, the capital of Kofi Annan's native country, Ghana, to present the Dr. Norman E. Borlaug Medallion to the former Secretary-General of the United Nations. Annan would subsequently speak at the World Food Prize Borlaug Dialogue later that year. Annan was recognized for his critical role in creating the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) which provided the structure and incentives for a global focus on enhancing food security around the world. Ambassador Quinn was also present in Oslo in 2001 at the 100th Anniversary of the Nobel Peace Prize. At that ceremony, Kofi Annan received the Peace Prize for his international leadership of the United Nations. Ambassador Quinn also worked directly with Annan on the UN-Cambodian Peace Process when Annan was serving as Undersecretary General for Peacekeeping.
