The Women Economic Forum, an annual global business conference for women held in India since 2015, moves to the Middle East this week.
More than 1,500 women business leaders from over 120 nations are in Cairo this week for workshops on employment, international trade, technology and finance. Organizers say the move underscores the ascendance of women in the Middle East business community.
“I have met some really exceptional women in Egypt,” said Women Economic Forum Founder Harbeen Arora. “And we would like the world and our global community to learn about them.”
