Dubai: Women need to remove all the barriers and influence the business world for a better tomorrow by working together.This was echoed by speakers at the AHK Business Women Forum, held at Expo 2020 Dubai.

"These are exceptional moments for women in the UAE as we celebrate our 50th anniversary,” said Hafsa Al Ulama, UAE Ambassador to Germany. “Gender equality is of paramount importance, and the Constitution guarantees equal rights for men and women."

"We can't do without the potential offered by women as we shape our future," said Claudia Dörr-Voß, State Secretary at the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. "We need to work together on removing all the barriers in the way of our female talent, including funding instruments like venture capital."

It aims to support women starting from career growth, and meeting like-minded people.
