Mr Blair served as UK Prime Minister from 1997 to 2007. During his time in office, his New Labour government was responsible for implementing major domestic reform across Great Britain and Northern Ireland, with record investment in education and healthcare and transformational progress on equality and human rights.
On the global stage, Mr Blair was instrumental in securing the Good Friday Agreement with Northern Ireland, created the Department for International Development to address extreme poverty around the world, and introduced landmark legislation to tackle climate change.
Alain Maingreaud, TFWA President, said; “As always at the TFWA World Conference, our aim is to engage speakers who can help us better understand the times in which we live and do business. Our keynote speaker this year is someone with unrivalled experience of regional and global politics, who is able to address the often complex issues that are shaping the world economy. We are delighted to welcome Mr Blair to Cannes and look forward to hearing his thoughts on a wide range of issues.”
