Women in Business in Asia

Further to my recent article "Women in Business in the Middle East":

From The Star Online:
"Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen said that as of June this year, women made up 21% (2,873) of the total exporters registered with Matrade and there was a huge potential for them to grow in this area.

She also said that in small and medium-scale enterprises, only five per cent of financing totalling RM94mil went to SMEs owned by women. Dr Ng said that at decision-making level at the work place, 20% were made up of women, adding that the number was moving up."

This certainly is encouraging - and I am still interested in statistics from other countries as well.
