ABU DHABI, 25th September, 2016 (WAM)–Mariam Mohammed Al Rumaithi, Chairperson of the Abu Dhabi Businesswomen Council, has discussed with Rita Swan, Finnish ambassador to the UAE, ways to strengthen bilateral relations, exchange experiences and best practices of women entrepreneurs to better discharge their functions at labour market.

During their meeting, held at the council’s headquarters in Abu Dhabi, Al Rumaithi said the council seeks to increase cooperation with organisations that sponsor women entrepreneurs in advanced countries, so that they benefit from their successful practices, especially in Finland.

She also briefed the Finnish envoy about the council, future plans and their achievements in recent years. Al Rumaithi noted that these accomplishments would not have been achieved without the support of the UAE leadership, and sponsorship of H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women’s Union (GWU), Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation (FDF) and President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood.

The Finnish ambassador extended an invitation to the council members to visit Finland so that they learn about the experiences of successful women entrepreneurs there.
