Arab female investors are to hold a meeting next Monday in Saudi Arabia. The meeting, which would take place in Jeddah city, will discuss the global economic crisis and its repercussions on the Arab and Muslim countries, Chairwoman of the Supreme Tourist Committee at the Arab Women Investors Union Fouzia Nashir said.

Furthermore, the meeting will review a number of development projects in the Arab World including common tourist ones among the countries to participate in the meeting.

In a statement on departure for the meeting on Sunday, Nashir stressed the importance of qualifying Yemeni women within the economic systems taking into account the necessity of the Arab integration in this regard.

She highlighted the significance of group and organization work to limit unemployment in the country.

All efforts made to qualify Yemeni women come within the framework of the Arab women's plans to support development in their countries amid the current economic crisis.

On the other hand, Minister of Labor and Social Affairs, currently taking part in the Forum of Partnership and Social Responsibility being held in Riyadh, discussed on Sunday with her Saudi counterpart ways to activate a bilateral agreement on promoting cooperation on workforce issues.

During the meeting, which took place on the margins of the first day of the forum, the two ministers also agreed on mechanisms to promote mutual cooperation in areas such as training, exchange of visits and holding joint conferences and symposiums.
