UAE Foreign Trade Minister HE Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi has been awarded the FLO Special Woman Achiever Award by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry's Ladies Organisation, in appreciation for her role in development of women in the UAE and the world. Commenting on the award, she said "I am very much honoured to receive the award. I shall take home this recognition on behalf of all the Arab Muslim women who aspire to achieve more for the betterment of society".

Lubna urged women to evaluate their strengths, pointing out that hard work and dedication would ensure excellence in all fields. She noted that women have assumed important roles in business, politics and society "using our unique approach to moulding a better world", citing that women here in India have achieved so much, particularly in the business community.

Lubna indicated that four women currently occupy key Cabinet positions in the UAE, adding that "our parliament now includes 22.5 per cent women MPs. Women also constitute 30 per cent of all management positions and outnumber men in the public sector. In private sector, female workforce participation has risen from 9.6 per cent in 1996 to 33.4 per cent as of December 2007, and is projected to climb another 30 per cent by 2010". – Emirates News Agency, WAM
