Egypt will host the 8th edition of the Africa Women Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum (AWIEF) conference and awards on 26 – 27 September in Cairo, according to Minister for International Cooperation, Rania Al-Mashat.

AWIEF2022 is a hybrid event (in-person in Cairo and online), with an easy-to-access virtual platform for speakers, delegates, and virtual exhibitors to participate

“The hosting of this event reflects Egypt’s keenness and support for empowering women and enhancing their economic participation and important roles on innovation and entrepreneurship to achieve sustainable development. Such a step also reflects the state’s pivotal roles and national efforts on women empowerment to strengthen women’s contribution to the labour markets,” Ah-Mashat stated at a joint press conference held by the International Cooperation Ministry, AWIEF and the Egyptian Businessmen’s Association.
