It also hosts prominent international figures, including government officials, executive directors, investors and business leaders, to present their experiences, challenges and achievements.
During the forum, which saw the participation of 22 countries, presentations were made about the competencies of the ministries of the Republic of Georgia, such as the ministries of tourism and economy and finance, as well as local chambers of commerce, related to encouraging investment and promoting joint businesses while showcasing the experiences of individuals and companies and their economic and investment achievements.
On the sidelines of the conference, a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, between the Emirates Businesswomen Council and Georgia Businesswomen Council was signed by Liateem and Catherine Mayswards, Chairperson of the Georgian Businesswomen Council, in the presence of Obaid Khalifa Al Kaabi, Charge D’affaires of the UAE Embassy in Tbilisi, and Fatma Al Awadhi and Futtaim Al Shehhi, who are board members of the Emirates Businesswomen Council.
