The Abu Dhabi Businesswomen Council, a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ADCCI), held discussions with eight foreign chambers and business councils in the UAE to enhance cooperation and increase the volume of trade and investment exchange between Emirati businesswomen and female entrepreneurs.

The meeting included the American, Canadian, British, French, Irish, Pakistani, and Philippine business councils, in addition to the council of the Benelux Union, which includes Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg.

The meeting was chaired by Asma Al Fahim, Chairwoman of the Abu Dhabi Businesswomen Council at the ADCCI headquarters.

It was attended by Liz Beneski, CEO of the American Chamber of Commerce in Abu Dhabi, and the heads of the participating councils, along with a number of council members.

During this meeting, the participants discussed the prospects for mutual cooperation between businesswomen and female entrepreneurs in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and their counterparts in the countries represented by the attending councils.

Al Fahim said: "At the Abu Dhabi Businesswomen Council, we are excited to launch the first in a series of strategic events designed to enhance collaboration across Abu Dhabi's key councils.

“Our goal is to create a dynamic ecosystem that boosts both our members and Abu Dhabi's economy, with a particular focus on advancing women in the private sector and fostering their role in sustainable economic development.

"These inaugural meetings mark the beginning of building strategic partnerships and creating lasting, fruitful connections among Abu Dhabi's female entrepreneurs and their international counterparts.

“By addressing their economic, financial, and business challenges, we open new opportunities, enhance international trade and investment, strengthen business ties, and facilitate knowledge exchange.”

Beneski said: “Our participation in this important meeting comes within the framework of the joint cooperative initiative between the American Chamber of Commerce in Abu Dhabi and the Abu Dhabi Businesswomen Council.

“We, at American Chamber of Commerce are keen to provide an effective platform for all parties concerned with economic activities between the United States and the UAE and enhancing trade exchange and joint investments between the two countries.

“This meeting stands as a constructive initiative which underscores our dedication to addressing shared concerns that enhance commercial operations between our two friendly nations.”

The participants in the meeting discussed the prospects of signing a number of memorandums of understanding (MOUs) and new partnerships in the near future between the Abu Dhabi Businesswomen Council and the attending foreign business councils and chambers.

The meeting also highlighted the mechanisms, opportunities, advantages, and facilitations that Abu Dhabi provides to foreign and international companies, with the aim of encouraging businesswomen and female entrepreneurs from outside the country and enabling them to invest in Abu Dhabi, establish and develop their businesses, benefit from the momentum of economic life in the Emirate, and enhance their presence in the markets of the UAE and the region. – TradeArabia News Service
