RIYADH: Under Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman’s aegis, the Council of Saudi Chambers (CSC) will organize the 2nd National Business Women’s Forum (NBWF-2015) in September.
The two-day forum will be held under the theme “The reality of women’s investments in the Kingdom and how to develop them,” at the Four Seasons Hotel in Riyadh.
“The high profile event will identify the reality of women’s investments, the challenges they face in different regions of the Kingdom and how to overcome them,” according to the CSC statement.
It also seeks to educate businesswomen on new regulations for investment procedures and other issues concerning this sector.
It will also highlight initiatives undertaken by various agencies in the country, especially the private sector, to empower Saudi women in the areas of finance, training and employment.
The forum will aim to introduce successful experiences of women, both locally and internationally, in the field of investments, and raise awareness of the importance of integration of businesswomen and merging their investment projects, in addition to methods necessary to facilitate the process.
It will also seek businesswomen’s opinions on various executive bodies, the government and private sectors on ways to create a conducive climate for investment.
The event will also work to develop mechanisms that can contribute to motivate and encourage Saudi women to more broadly enter the world of investment and in a professional manner.
According to the CSC source, the event will discusses four major topics including development of women’s investments; women’s investments in the Kingdom between diversity and concentration; a review of the role of entrepreneurship and innovation in women’s investments; and regional experiences in the development of women’s investments.
