“The statue was commissioned by the Reagan Memorial Fund Trust. Rob Bauer, director of external affairs at the foundation, said: ‘President Reagan always referred to the United States' special relationship with Great Britain, especially his personal friendship with Baroness Thatcher. The Reagan Foundation commissioned the statue to honour that partnership and to celebrate an enduring alliance.’ Mr Reagan died in 2004 at the age of 93, having served as US president between 1981 and 1989. To acknowledge Mr Reagan's contribution to the end of the Cold War, a piece of the Berlin Wall will be installed in front of the statue.”
