A major conference has been held in Stockholm on the theme of Women for Sustainable Growth.
The conference was arranged at the initiative of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Lund University, in association with other parties including the United Arab Emirates Embassy in Stockholm, Zayed University and Yale University. Before the conference, The Crown Princess held an audience with some of the participants at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. They spent an hour discussing the theme of the conference: a socially and economically sustainable society through female leadership. The conference consisted of panel discussions, workshops and networking sessions, and ran for two days. Visit the Center for Middle Eastern Studies here.
