Female Entrepreneurs in the Middle East Face More Problems than Males

Aspen InstituteJuly 1, 2013

This panel will explore the current economics of the Middle East and emphasize how it is part of a significant and clear shift in global economic and, to some extent, political power from West to East. The discussion will touch on how war and instability blind the West to the economic opportunity in the MENA region, despite the fact that for over a decade countries like Turkey, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia are consistently ranked in the top-ten growth markets in terms of potential across almost every survey.
