Welcome Message

Dear Members,

We want to extend a warm welcome to all of you, and we hope to see you and your delegation at our “2019 Global Women's Trade Summit and Women Leaders Forum”

We would like to give you some information so you can begin to plan with your group to come on October 1-2nd and optional day October 3rd.

“2019 GWTS' & GWLF” will take place in Busan on the 1st and 2nd October 2019 and the theme for this year's summit is, “Women’s Entrepreneurship and Leadership towards Global Economic Growth”

IWFCI, Korea’s Global Women’s Trade Summit and the 6th Global Women Leaders Forum which was inaugurated as a concurrent event to ASEAN-Republic of Korea Commemorative Summit in 2014 have joined together to use the synergy and resources of our organizations to bring together businesswomen and leaders from around the world to share and build women’s business networks and to support women as global leaders. Our strong ambition is to make this year's event a down-to-earth networking platform that will bridge and link businesswomen around the world.

In keeping with building bridges and linking businesswomen from around the world, we have significantly expanded the number of countries invited to this year’s GWTS & GWLF, Korea. We planned an exciting program with diverse group speakers and delegations from more than 20 countries. In addition to IWFCI Chapter delegations and speakers, there will be delegations and speakers from Central Asia, Middle East, Algeria, Far East Russia, Sweden and the U.S.A. This diversity will provide for a rich and informative exchange of ideas and connections among female leaders and businesswomen.

We look forward to seeing all of you in October.
