Global Summit for Women to Be Held in Istanbul

The so-called Davos Summit for women, the Global Summit of Women will take place next week in Istanbul with the participation of Emine Erdoğan, wife of the Turkish prime minister.

The Global Summit of Women was conceived as the nexus at which all sectors – public, private and nonprofit – can come together under the common vision of dramatically expanding women’s economic opportunities globally through exchanges of working solutions and creative strategies forged by female leaders in different parts of the world. It is a business summit whose “business” focus is women’s advancement in the global economy.

This year’s summit which will take place May 5-7 will be attended by Joyce Banda, the vice president of Malawi, Nguyen Thi Doan, vice president of Vietnam, as well as the first ladies of Namibia and Malaysia.
