Sheikha Hessa first Arab female Vice-Pres. of Arab-Italian Chamber of Commerce.

| By Mahdi Al-Namir ROME, Oct 5 (KUNA) -- The Board of Directors of the Arab-Italian Chamber of Commerce has elected Sheikha Dr. Hessa Saad Al-Abdullah Al-Salem Al-Sabah as Vice-President of the Chamber; the first Kuwaiti and Arab female to assume this senior post.

The board also elected five other Arab females from Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Bahrain to boost to Arab women's role in the field of commerce.

Sheikha Hessa, who is also head of the Arab Women's Business Council and representative of Kuwait in the Chamber's general assembly session, told KUNA that electing her as vice-president is " a move directed to deepen and expanding Arab-Italian ties and engaging women entrepreneurs of small to medium businesses in promoting economic and social development in Arab countries." "Having a direct Arab female involvement within the Arab-Italian Chamber of Commerce and building bridges of communications with other Italian female business women, would greatly increase chances of commercial cooperation," she stressed.

She further noted that assuming this high-ranking post is also an "appreciation" of Kuwaiti women and an "admission" of their active role in the fields of production, economy, culture and science. It is also an incentive to spread their business activities regionally and internationally.

The Board of Directors of the Arab-Italian Chamber of Commerce also elected the representative of the Council of Saudi Chamber in the Board Sheikh Zamil bin Abdullah Al-Zamil.

The Arab-Italian Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organization based on total equality between both Arab and Italian sides. It aims at promoting economic cooperation and commercial relations with Arab Countries. (end) mn.nfm KUNA 051330 Oct 12NNNN
