Cyprus Meetings, Limassol, 2-7 October 2023 with WICCI Cyprus  

Visiting Cyprus, a scenic island nation of a million people, part of the European Union as also the Commonwealth, gave us the opportunity to be in Limassol. We were there to participate in the “Women who Launch” conference organised by the Cyprus – India business council of Women’s Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (WICCI) led by the President Marina Zevedeou, as also attend the Limassol Economic Forum upon the invitation of G100 Global Chair for Sustainable Businesses , H.E. Natasa Pilides.  

We were honored to have with us Her Excellency the High Commissioner of India Madhumita Hazarika Bhagat. The panels was equally inspiring, filled with insightful discussions on how we can empower women and create a world that we all deserve.

The lunch on October 5 with H.E. Natasa Pilides and country chairs was filled with positive conversations and of course the opportunity to celebrate Shakti Bandhan on our World Sisterhood Day. 

At the Limassol Economic Forum, it was an honor to meet H.E. Annita Demetriou, first female to become Speaker of the Cypriot Parliament as also the first female to lead as President of the Democratic Rally Party. She is also the youngest person to lead in these seminal roles.
