Lebanon’s Ambassador in Kiev
“Women in the Middle East today are playing a big role in the political and business life of their countries. They are no longer confined to being housewives and mothers – they do all the jobs that in the past were confined to men alone. The percentage of women who work in banks, government departments and large corporations is on the rise. I hope that we will continue to see this trend growing.” Ambassador Claude Al-Hajal
