New Asia Foundation President David Arnold

June 9, 2010

David D. Arnold has been appointed the new president and CEO of The Asia Foundation. The Asia Foundation is a non-profit, non-governmental organization working to develop peace and prosperity across the Asia-Pacific region. The Foundation works to help modernize and develop the Asia through different kinds of research, activities and program developments.

Mr. Arnold brings a diverse background in public service and international relations to The Asia Foundation. Hopefully, he can encourage a fresh perspective with a stronger focus on the South Asia region, since previously Mr. Arnold worked with the Ford Foundation serving as foundation’s representative for India, Nepal and Sri Lanka. He is also currently the president of the American University in Cairo, which means he is uniquely situated to observe all kinds of international affairs abroad as an American citizen.
