On Thursday May 17, 2012 WISTA UAE (Women’s International Shipping and Trading Association) members had an interesting and well-attended tour to the ADPC site office and Khalifa ports in Abu Dhabi.
The event started at 9 am with the arrival of delegates and a presentation at the visitor center and ended at 12 pm with their return from site tour of Khalifa port.
The focus of the event was on networking, education and mentoring as well as promotion of leadership and sharing of valuable experience among international female delegates.
WISTA UAE’s great event was organized by Mrs. Jasamin Fichte, presiding President of WISTA UAE to enable delegates establish contact and share knowledge and success.

This time the meeting was as interesting as all the previous ones combining a media table tour in ADPC site office in Taweela and a site tour to Khalifa ports.
“ADPC is becoming one of the huge players on an International level. Today not only committed to increasing awareness of females in this business, but is also keen to learn from them and exchange views in various discussions”, said Jameela Al Junaibi, Marketing Manager at ADPC.
