Tunis hosts first conference of Arab Union for Specialised Women

The first conference of the Arab Union for Specialised Women was held Thursday in Tunis under the motto “Economic Empowerment of Specialised Arab Women and Investment Opportunities.”

Over 100 women specialised in a wide array of fields and representing many Arab countries, including Tunisia, Palestine, Lebanon and Egypt, took part in this meeting that sought to help establish partnerships and energise the relationship between Arab countries.

The creation of the Arab Union for Specialised Women was officially announced in December 2015 at a meeting of the Arab Economic Unity Council that brought together 17 countries.
