According to a statement from the Secretary General of the Family Affairs Council Dr. Hala Al-Tuwaijri, the Kingdom hosting such an event for Arab Women under the slogan of “Empowering Women … Development of Society” is part of the efforts exerted by Saudi Arabia in addressing Arab issues and supporting the development of their societies.

“Saudi Arabia’s hosting of the meeting comes at a time when the Kingdom is witnessing many reforms related to empowering women in accordance with the ambitious Vision 2 030 that had a direct impact on supporting and empowering Saudi women at various levels through a host of decisions and legislation that support her career and enhance her position,” the statement added.

One of the main highlights of the meeting will be announcing Riyadh as the capital of Arab women for the year 2020 under the slogan of “Women is a nation and ambition,” which is a great leap to the Kingdom especially after its presidency of G20.
