Churchill Centre Board Member honors opposition Burmese MP.
Lord Marland, UK Minister for Energy, presented Noble Peace Prize winner Daw Aung San Suu Kyi with the International Churchillian Award 2012, in recognition of her furtherance of the causes of democracy and freedom.
Lord Marland met Daw Aung San Suu Kyi at the Amara Hotel in Naypyidaw on 10 July 2012, accompanied by a delegation of 24 of the UK’s leading businesses—the first UK trade mission to the country in many years.
In developing its trade and investment relationship, the British government will be working closely with UK companies to ensure they promote the highest standards of corporate governance, human rights, and social and environmental responsibility.
The Churchillian Award is presented on an annual basis by The Churchill Centre (UK) to honor those who have displayed Churchillian values in public life. Previous recipients have included Baroness Thatcher and General Sir David Richards, Chief of the British Defence Staff.
