Dr Geraldine Spiteri, director and advocate at leading Maltese legal and advisory specialists Acumum – Legal & Advisory, is hosting a chamber on maritime, transport and logistics at the upcoming Women Economic Forum summit taking place in Malta between 16 and 18 May 2022.
The event commences with a one-day meeting hosting G100 event on Monday 16th May, followed by the Women Economic Forum (WEF) conference, which is a series of discussion chambers as well as networking events on Tuesday 17th May and Wednesday 18th May. While G100 is a group of 100 female economic leaders around the world, WEF conducts global summits , offering a compelling platform for women to be increasingly involved in the business world, inspired by some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs, authors, thought leaders and celebrities.
The event will host women in leading roles – as well as male counterparts – from around the world, as well as Malta. On the agenda will be inclusion, public health, the arts, culture and language, sustainable energy, business and economic development, maritime affairs, logistics and environmental affairs.
Dr Geraldine Spiteri, who specialises in maritime, aviation and corporate law, will be hosting a chamber within the WEF forum covering maritime affairs, blue economy, aviation, transport and logistics. These are matters that are of key interest to Malta in general, with Malta being a maritime hub and transport being a sector that has received major focus in recent years. The classification of the Maltese shipping register as the sixth largest maritime registry worldwide, and Europe’s largest and the increase in the number of aircraft registered under the Malta aircraft register are ample proof of the commitment by the Malta Government to increase these sectors.
‘Receiving an invitation to play a leading role in a global event of this scale, focused on these themes, is important both professionally and on a wider scale, is indeed an honour,’ Geraldine comments. ‘I’m looking forward to meeting passionate people, sharing views and taking part in interesting discussions and also widening my network of contacts in the industries that the chamber I will be hosting is tackling Acumum has always been an inclusive company and supporter of empowering women – encouraging and embedding the advancement of female entrepreneurship in Malta and globally is a cause we’re always pleased to support.’
While the G100 summit is only open to members of that group, the WEF Summit is open to a wider network and includes the chamber hosted by Dr Spiteri. Registration to the WEF Summit is open to all interested parties – male and female – from all over the world.
