Address at the United Nations World Food Day Observance

In 2013, the Director General of the United Nations-Food and Agriculture Organization (UNFAO) invited Ambassador Quinn to give the keynote presentation at the UN World Food Day Observance held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. In his remarks to the gathering of a broad array of international leaders, Ambassador Quinn stressed the transformative role that roads and rural infrastructure can play in both fighting hunger and reducing conflict and terrorism. Ambassador Quinn was pleased that he could introduce his son Shandon and his wife Diane to Dr. Graziano deSilva, the Director General of the UNFAO.
