The Romanian female business environment will face the international one, focusing on finding answers for the business environment, generating a flow of ideas for the development of the entrepreneurial and business environment, in the current social and economic context.
Furthermore, statistics in Romania show that 35% of SMEs have women leaders and 11% are exclusively run by women. Out of the businesses run by women, 46% are in the trading field and 20% in the service area – human resources, training, accounting, and cosmetics.
Basically, women are having an increasingly important place in the business world, proven by the fact that they obtain excellence in the fields they activate in.
