SHARJAH, Sharjah Business Women Council (SBWC), an affiliate of NAMA Women Advancement Establishment (NAMA), recently received a delegation of 14 businesswomen from the Kyrgyz Republic to explore opportunities for collaboration in sectors as diverse as education, infrastructure, fashion and retail, media and consulting, renewable energy, agri-food industries, travel & tourism, and more.
The Kyrgyz delegation was led by Nazira Beishenalieva, Chairperson of the CJSC Bank of Asia and Chairperson of the American Chamber of Commerce in the Kyrgyz Republic; and Daria Chebakova, PR-Manager of the American Chamber of Commerce in the Kyrgyz Republic.
The delegation comprising entrepreneurs, experts and business leaders was received by the SBWC management led by Mariam Bin Al Shaikh, Director of SBWC.
Other attendees at the networking meeting included SBWC members and Board members, Emirates Business Women Council Board Members and officials of leading commercial entities in Sharjah, including Sharjah Airport International Free (SAIF) Zone; Sharjah FDI Office – Invest In Sharjah; as well as representatives of the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI).
Following the networking session, Mariam Bin Al Shaikh, Director of SBWC, said, “This meeting provided female business leaders from Kyrgyzstan a closer look at the opportunities available in Sharjah and the UAE’s diversified economy and specific areas they can capitalise on here.”
“Since going global last year to reflect SBWC’s ongoing evolution and its bold vision to drive full integration of businesswomen in the economy, not only locally, but around the world, we have been frequently hosting businesswomen and female entrepreneurs from around the world as we believe that we can act as a catalyst, enabling them to realise their goals to establish themselves in this part of the world. This meeting with the Kyrgyz delegation helped both sides explore a myriad of opportunities that can be looked into and eventually turned into successful enterprises with the support and local expertise of SBWC. Sharjah’s investor-first attitude and other competitive advantages along with a brilliant track record of success with regards to supporting the ambitions of businesswomen are an added incentive,” she further noted.
The networking session was part of SBWC’s Women Invest in Women international business networking series, and was held at House of Wisdom in Sharjah.
