Dr Raja Al Gurg is third in Forbes 100 most powerful Arab businesswomen ranking

Women from the UAE dominated the Forbes Middle East list of the 100 Most Powerful Arab Women with as many as 18 making it to the top this year. Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi, Minister of State for Tolerance in the UAE, is revealed as the number one most powerful Arab woman in government in 2017. Dr Raja Easa Al Gurg, Managing Director of Easa Saleh Al Gurg Group, has been ranked the third most influential businesswoman in the Arab world.

The UAE is followed closely by Egypt with 16. Saudi Arabia’s Lubna Olayan, who runs Saudi conglomerate the Olayan Group, tops the list. This year in particular, women across the Arab world appear to be cracking the remaining glass ceilings, and nowhere more so it seems than in the banking sector. The region’s banks have raised several high-achieving and long-serving women to its highest positions, with the industry representing 28% of the 2017 list.
