Hitam said the forum, due to be held in Kuala Lumpur on May 27-29, would showcase ability of Muslim nations to cooperate on the economic level, coming up with feasible projects.

"The Islamic world can agree on matters of mutual cooperation, issuing decisions which will be implemented in the forum of commercial and economic projects," said Hitam, calling for the invitation of international experts to help Muslim nations promote economic potentials.

Regarding items discussed in pervious meetings, Hitam revealed that the forum concentrated on education, women, and youth economic development, saying that in the second forum, held in Pakistan, discussions dealt with aiding businesswomen in their quest to achieve their economic ambitions.

"Issues such as training nurses in order to send them to working markets in Islamic countries underlines importance of the private sector in women's development," the official said, referring to one of the main topics discussed in the second forum.
He added that the upcoming forum would study a proposal to establish a center for Muslim businesswomen, adding that several states were ready to host its headquarters.

The upcoming WIFE meeting will be held under the theme "Global Challenges - Innovative Partnerships", showcasing participation of prominent figures such as Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser Al-Mohammad Al-Sabah.
