Lagarde, Suu Kyi head line-up at women’s forum in Rangoon

The Women’s Forum for the Economy and Society, which describes itself as the “world’s leading platform featuring women’s views and voices on major social and economic issues,” is hosting its inaugural conference in Rangoon on Friday and Saturday (6- 7 December). The meeting will be the third Forum event this year, with others previously held in France and Brazil.

The Forum, a subsidiary of French advertising and public relations conglomerate Publicis Group, has partnered with the French Embassy and 13 corporate sponsors – including Pepsico, Total, Accor and Sanofi – to conduct the event. Panel discussions will address the role of women in Burma’s economic and political opening, touching on issues including responsible foreign investment, entrepreneurship and peacebuilding.
