The Women’s Entrepreneurship & Investment Programme (WEIP) Forum will take place in Barcelona from 22-24 November. Organised by the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) and the Association of the Mediterranean Chambers of Commerce and Industry (ASCAME), this event will provide a unique opportunity to promote women’s entrepreneurship in the Mediterranean, where the rate of women who run their own businesses is two to three times lower than the world average.

More than 70 Mediterranean women entrepreneurs will exchange experiences and best practices and explore new business and investment opportunities through networking and match-making activities. Through dedicated workshops, B2B meetings and study tours the event will also promote dialogue between women entrepreneurs from both sides of the Mediterranean with the objectives of strengthening cooperation, fostering international partnerships and creating new business opportunities in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
