Further, it intends to expand cooperation to increase women’s participation in economic sectors.

Through the forum, the SCCI will spotlight the UAE’s and Sharjah’s accomplishments in supporting and empowering Emirati women, developing their capabilities, and providing them with tools for success and leadership.

The forum, which will be attended by a group of Emirati and European businesswomen, will discuss cooperation ways to establish business partnerships in order to strengthen mutual relations.

“It will provide an opportunity for Emirati businesswomen to meet with their European counterparts to exchange experiences and learn about the best practices used in establishing, managing, and developing businesses, as well as to open channels of communication with women’s economic communities in Europe to explore new prospects for joint action,” as per the statement.

The SCCI said that the side meetings will be held during the forum to exchange ideas on how to establish future investment partnerships in the industrial, commercial, and other sectors.
