PARIS: The Prime Minister’s wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, has urged Malaysian and French women entrepreneurs to form virtual associations to strengthen relations and leverage on new technologies.

In building and strengthening networks, she said, women entrepreneurs should make the most of ICT to connect, network and internationalise their businesses.

“A good support network is a factor for women’s success.

“A pervasive paradigm shift has occurred and women are increasingly being recognised and acknowledged as major players in helping to shape the economy and social landscape of the community as well as the country,” she said at the Business Networking Session of Malaysian and French Women in Business here yesterday.

It was attended by some 30 Malaysian and 30 French entrepreneurs, as well as Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Rohani Abdul Karim, Malaysian ambassador to France Tan Sri Ismail Omar and Business and Professional Women in France secretary-general Christine Cluzel.

She said women were making inroads into the world of business and formed a third of all people involved in entrepreneurial undertakings worldwide. — Bernama
