It was an honor to be invited as a delegate to represent the private sector at APEC (American-Pacific Economic Cooperation) by the White House and the Department of State. I participated in the working draft of the Declaration of San Francisco, under the Chairmanship of U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, which has been officially adopted. The 21 economies who are the APEC leaders expressed their will to work together to promoting entrepreneurship and greater leadership for women in business and government. The four pillars of initiatives are: access to market, women leadership, capacity building and access to capital. In 2011 and beyond, APEC economies will take concrete actions to realize the full potential of women, integrate them more fully into APEC economies, and harness their talents.
