in the World Trade Centre in Mumbai on the 27-29 March 2017
The All India Association of Industries (AIAI) and World Trade Centre (WTC) Mumbai are jointly organizing the 6th edition of Global Economic Summit 2017 on the theme Women Empowerment: Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Capacity Building scheduled from 27-29 March, 2017 at the World Trade Centre in Mumbai. Aligned with the United Nationals Sustainable Development Goals and UN Women’s Empowermnet Principles the 6th Edition of the Global Economic Summit aims to analyze the challenges, present opportunities and provide a platform to empower women.
Although there have been developments for women empowerment in the world economy at large, yet gender disparity in most of the developing and developed countries is an obstacle for women towards equal access to resources and opportunities.
The Summit aims to take up these issues with stakeholders and experts including governments, financial institutions, educational organizations, civil society, multilateral agencies, officials of the International organizations from India and overseas as well as with representatives from the private and public sector.
The Summit will showcase women’s entrepreneurial excellence in diverse fields. The discussions will include dynamic issues relevant to women’s empowerment across all verticals.
