In their remarks for the occasion, Sofia Loréus the Minister for the Status of Women and the Prime Minister a.i Ariel Henry congratulated the 85 winning companies, led by women, for their spirit of creativity, their sense of initiative and their commitment to contribute to the development of the country.
