“The Council plays a key role in empowering female entrepreneurs to contribute to the UAE’s sustainable economic growth. We strive to increase the opportunities for businesswomen to grow in the labour market and enhance productivity and quality,” she added.
The Executive Board Member noted that to achieve this, the Council constantly works on organising workshops, events, and training and development sessions to raise the awareness of female entrepreneurs of key entities, services, and opportunities that support them in achieving their business objectives.
“Accordingly, this open day event aligns with our activities and initiatives that contribute to enhancing the role of businesswomen in Abu Dhabi’s private sector.
“There is a wide range of reasons that make the Emirate of Abu Dhabi a leading destination to settle, set up your business, build a bright future, and take part in driving the Emirate’s economic growth.
“Abu Dhabi is one of the top places for doing business. The Emirate, which serves as the link between the Eastern and the Western markets, provides advanced infrastructure and regulatory, legislative and logistics capabilities that support the export of products to new markets. The Emirate was also ranked the first regionally and the 12th globally in the ease of doing business, according to a recent report,” she concluded.
ADRO’s role is to attract the best international talents to the Emirate through its initiatives and services that aim to enhance the quality of life of residents. The Office provided the members of the Abu Dhabi Businesswomen Council with information about its initiatives, which include the loyalty program INTAMI, long-term residency, guides for residents, and other programs and events.
For his Part, His Excellency Hareb Al Mheiri, Executive Director of ADRO, said: “Abu Dhabi has become one of the most preferred global destination for talents to live, work, achieve their ambitions, and enjoy a high quality of life. The Emirate managed to establish itself as a leading destination, and was classified as one of the safest cities in the world and the most livable city in the MENA region according to recent studies.”
His Excellency Al Mheiri briefed the attendees on the efforts of ADRO for supporting a thriving community, and its continuous endeavors to attract and retain the best talents in Abu Dhabi and enhance their sense of belonging, to contribute to accelerating the comprehensive economic development in the Emirate.
