Connecting Excellence. Shaping the Future. 


When Women Lean In, Economies Win - Empowering women economically bears a major potential for economic growth. Both short and long term effects of women’s economic activities contribute to the economic success of a country and serve to better face global challenges. The positive economic impact of women’s participation in business has been widely acknowledged. Hence, exchanging ideas, experiences and perspectives of leading business women from Germany and the Arab world is an important strategic part of German-Arab business relations and will further boost economic ties between the two regions.
