President Clinton’s Visit To New Zealand

23 April 2002

Statement by Dr Nicole Bassett
Executive Director, Variety – The Children’s Charity

Media reports today have suggested that Variety was forced to cancel a charity event involving former US President Bill Clinton in Christchurch, because of exclusive rights held by BMW.

This is incorrect. Variety held separate negotiations which were unsuccessful.

Variety wishes BMW every success with President Clinton's visit to Auckland, and regrets any confusion.
