Women business owners drive the engine for economic growth in every country and it is critical that they are properly prepared to take full advantage of the opportunities afforded by exporting.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 04, 2015
Women Impacting Public Policy International (WIPP International) whose mission is to build powerful collaborative networks among leading women-led organizations, announced today that President Jennifer Bisceglie spoke at the Trailblazer Summit and Women Vendors Exhibition and Forum (WVEF) in São Paulo, Brazil.
According to the International Trade Centre (ITC) which hosts the conference, WVEF is a premier business event that links women vendors to markets by providing training and facilitating meetings with buyers. At the Trailblazer Summit, the ITC called on global leaders, governments, and the private sector to work to ensure that one million more women are able to enter markets as entrepreneurs and business owners by 2020.
“I am honored to have been included on such distinguished panels,” said Jennifer Bisceglie, who is also CEO of Interos Solutions, Inc. “I enjoyed speaking to fellow women entrepreneurs about being ‘export ready’. Women business owners drive the engine for economic growth in every country and it is critical that they are properly prepared to take full advantage of the opportunities afforded by exporting.”
The annual WVEF is part of the ITC’s Women and Trade Programme, which seeks to increase the participation of women entrepreneurs in global supply chains and ensure that they enjoy greater economic benefits from participation in international trade. According to the ITC, women own close to 10 million of the world’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Because SMEs account for almost 80% of jobs around the world, increasing their competitiveness boosts the likelihood of job creation and narrows the gender equality gap.
