he Mauritian Association of Women Entrepreneurs (AMFCE) will host the annual meeting of the Femmes Chefs d’Entreprise Mondiales (FCEM) from May 25-28.
In a press brief yesterday, Mrs Aline Wong, commissioner for African programmes at the FCEM, explained that presidents of national associations will explain their work around the theme “Women Entrepreneurs: the driving force for economic empowerment”. The election for the new FCME president will also take place.
“The economic situation in the world is very difficult. Women entrepreneurs need to innovate in their products and reinvent their activities to be able to make a place for themselves.
“There is too much competition and entrepreneurship demands imagination and courage,” said MrsWong. She added that the government needs to invest more in women entrepreneurs as they are contributing to the economy.
Through this event, women who have invested in or manage single-handedly or jointly businesses in the manufacturing, service or retail sectors will be brought together.
