Dame Wendy Pye was one of 16 women icons from APEC countries when she represented New Zealand at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Women and the Economy 2015 Fora in Manila in mid-September.
“The meeting was very interesting,” said Dame Wendy. “It was attended by leading Information Computer and Technology people from all over Asia and America. Taking part in the conference on ICT were women from many start ups and companies who were selling apps and digital content, not in publishing but other fields.
“There were interesting seminars also on crowd funding and also the future of digital technology,” she told PANZ News.
“The ICONs from other countries were wonderful women who had achieved great success in their own countries. Representatives from Russia, China and Canada were to me the most outstanding women.
“A great event and a celebration for all women achievers,” said Dame Wendy.
Delegates attended the twin launch of Iconograph and Luxe Philippines exhibits at the Philippine International Convention Center. Iconograph highlighted the stories of the 16 extraordinary women economic leaders from APEC economies.
