An ANC exclusive: Forum with former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright premieres on ANC on August 16

ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel, will be airing a TV special on the “Forum on Global Governance & World Economy, An ANC Leadership Series” featuring Madeleine Albright on Wednesday (August 16) at 8pm. Karen Davila’s exclusive interview with former U.S. secretary of state will also be shown the following week on August 23, 8am on “Headstart with Karen Davila,” also on ANC and ANC HD.

This Wednesday’s TV special will include the full speech of Dr. Albright, as well as the open forum moderated by Davila in the event held last July 19 at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Grand Ballroom, where over 400 business leaders and diplomats gathered to listen and learn from Albright, including Department of Foreign Affairs secretary Alan Peter Cayetano, US ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim, Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella, and Rep. Pia Cayetano, as well as ABS-CBN executives led by network president and CEO Carlo Katigbak and ABS-CBN News head and ANC managing director Ging Reyes.

Albright, currently a professor in the Practice of Diplomacy at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service and chair of the National Democratic Institute, discussed some of the pressing issues in the world today in her speech, such as the on-going armed conflicts around the globe, and emphasized the importance of cooperation among countries in resolving issues. She also gamely answered questions from Davila and audience members, who sought for her stand on national issues such as the current war in Marawi.

On “Headstart,” Davila will also get inside the mind of one of the world’s greatest women leaders, who was once the highest-ranking woman in the US government and was deeply involved in global affairs. As secretary of state, Dr. Albright reinforced America’s alliances, advocated for democracy and human rights, and promoted American trade, business, labor, and environmental standards abroad. Despite being away from politics, her views on the world’s current political and economic situation remain relevant today.

This is the second time that ANC featured a world-renowned speaker at the ANC Leadership Series, which aims to raise the discourse in topics such as economy and politics in the country. Last year, ANC brought in Virgin Group founder and philanthropist Sir Richard Branson who shared his life story and business knowledge to a crowd of business leaders, celebrities, and professionals in the forum moderated by Cathy Yang.

ANC, the first 24/7 all English news channel in the Philippines, is the go-to news source of the nation’s business leaders and decision makers. Apart from the ANC Leadership Series, ANC also holds the ANCX series, which serves as a venue for business leaders to gather and discuss the most important issues in the country and the world today.

Don’t miss the Madeleine Albright TV special on ANC and ANC HD on Wednesday (August 16) at 8pm and the exclusive one-on-one interview of Karen Davila with Madeleine Albright on August 23, 8am on “Headstart with Karen Davila” on ANC and ANC HD.
