Forum explores Expo opportunities for women
Abu Dhabi, January 7, 2014
The National Bank of Abu Dhabi’s (NBAD) recent Fursati event explored means and ways for women in the UAE to participate in the opportunities expected to be generated by Dubai Expo 2020.
The event was organised by NBAD’s Velvet- Private Banking for Women as part of its regular Fursati Economic Empowerment program (Fursati means “my opportunity”).
The theme of the session was “A day in the life of an entrepreneur” and allowed dozens of women entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs to brainstorm many different topics, including the opportunities that will arise from the expo.
“Dubai’s selection as the host of Expo 2020 is yet another confirmation of UAE’s dynamic market and progressive culture, which naturally continues to offer great opportunities for women,” said Mariah Khan, the head of NBAD’s Velvet- Private Banking for Women. “The goal of Fursati is to utilise every avenue to enhance women entrepreneurship and investment opportunities. Dialogue and conversation with experts and each other is one method in achieving this objective.” – TradeArabia News Service
