MILAN EXPO'S WOMEN BOARD ENDS MEETING ON WOMEN'S ROLE

Global Times - May 24, 2010

The "2015: Women and Expo" project's Advisory Board ended its two-day meeting in Milan on Saturday, with concrete steps in supporting women's empowerment globally and a call for education to provide solutions and spark action.

Launched in January at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the five-year plan will promote women's entrepreneurial creativity in the world, particularly in relation to the theme of the Milan Expo "Feed the Planet, Energy for Life", which cross-refers to women's caring role.

The Board acts as a high level advocacy group that will recommend projects to the Expo's scientific and expert committees, who will be addressing the European Union Commission and the World Bank for funding.

Milan Mayor Moratti, who is President of the Board along with Queen of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Her Majesty Rnia al-' Abd Allh, addressed the meeting with other members. She stressed the importance of projects that give women louder voice to boost productivity, build prosperity and increase their participation in the economic and social development of their countries.

"All programs supported by the project will be put on display in a special Pavilion for Women at Milan Expo," she said.

Moratti told Xinhua that the group is planning to include some Chinese advisors. "We'd like to discuss with them about projects that can be implemented in China," she said, adding that the next meeting of the Board will be held in Shanghai on October 28-29.

Among other initiatives, Moratti presented the group's flagship project, already approved by Jordanian, Israeli and Palestinian authorities, to build an aqueduct called "Peace Conduct", which will link Red Sea to Dead Sea, helping an area where water scarcity is a cause for conflicts.

Vice President of the Advisory Board and Vice Chair of the Italian Senate Emma Bonino told Xinhua that Shanghai Expo is a precious opportunity for the Board to meet and understand what kind of projects can be useful and innovative in China.

"Having visited China many times, I can say that women's fizz is very visible. China is presently one of the countries where women's role and leadership are consistently growing in various sectors," said Bonino.
