H.E. Sheikha Lubna bint Khalid bin Al Qasimi, Minister of Foreign Trade, UAE
Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi has been one of the most easily recognisable government officials of the United Arab Emirates, primarily because of her numerous groundbreaking achievements in both the public and private sectors. Her global prominence was highlighted recently when she was named among the 2009 Forbes List of the 100 Most Powerful Women in the World.

Sheikha Lubna was named CEO of Tejari, which she guided to become the premier electronic business-to-business marketplace for emerging markets and where she now serves as a board member.
