The Arab Women Investors Union honoured Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi on Monday for his alleged efforts to empower women in the country, according to Daily News Egypt. The award, presented at the Arab League’s “Towards Sustainable Development” conference in Sharm Al-Sheikh, was received by Sahar Nasr, Egypt’s Minister of Investment and International Cooperation. Nasr spoke of the numerous reforms that Al-Sisi had implemented and argued that changes, such as increasing the provision of social safety nets, had alleviated the pressure Egyptian women faced. In return the Arab Women Investors Union announced its intention to pump some 1.7 billion Egyptian pounds ($96.4 million) in new joint investments in the country.
