Melissa Giller, director of communications and programs for The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, said the statue is one of several that have been unveiled throughout the year in commemoration of the late president’s centennial birthday.
“(President Reagan’s) birthday was on February 6, but we wanted take an entire year to celebrate it around the world,” Giller said.
Statues have been unveiled in locations like the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, Grosvenor Square in London and the foundation’s headquarters at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley.
