“We are extremely honoured that President Bush will be joining us at our Summit,” Argus Media chairman and chief executive Adrian Binks said. “His leadership, international affairs expertise, and energy experience will give our audience a unique perspective on the interconnection between politics and energy during this time of profound change for the oil markets.”

The 43rd President of the United States, and more recently the founder of the George W. Bush Presidential Center, President Bush joins a distinguished list of keynote speakers at the Argus Americas Crude Summit. Previous guests include Rex Tillerson, 69th US Secretary of State and former Chairman and Chief Executive of ExxonMobil, Dick Cheney, 46th US Vice-President, Mike Pompeo, 70th US Secretary of State and former Director of the CIA, H.R.
