Kabul, Afghanistan – A national summit of Afghan businesswomen has been launched in Kabul with support from USAID’s Promote: Women in the Economy (WIE) project, in close cooperation of the Office of the Chief Executive of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. The summit brought together more than 150 women-owned or managed Afghan businesses, government officials, interest groups, and industry leaders from throughout the country to examine challenges facing businesswomen. Convened at the Kabul Star Hotel, the summit provided a forum to identify areas of reform that will assist women-owned businesses in access to finance, markets, and increased revenues. The summit encouraged participants to share individual examples of issues they face, and work together to create practical and constructive plans that will help them grow.

“USAID is proud to support the National Business Women’s Summit—a unique representation of diverse businesses from across the country”, said Susan DeCamp, Director of USAID’s Gender Office.
