Speaking while being recognized with the Club de Madrid Democratic Leadership Award, 42nd U.S. President Bill Clinton draws on his personal experience and knowledge of outstanding leadership that combines “democratic values, practices, institutions and governance.” President Bill Clinton discusses the problem of governance by making parallels with Haiti and its struggle for a government “worth their people.”

Bill Clinton talks about the progress he’s seen in Haiti in terms of leadership development, and the work he has done with its newly positioned government. He also stresses the reasons behind the country’s lack of success in the past, which includes the need for structures such as governance, finance, competitive infrastructure and healthcare systems and its relation to leadership.
