The 'World Assembly for Women' hosted by Tokyo

TOKYO--Japan will host a women-focused international meeting next month where prominent business and political figures are to discuss how to link female participation in the workforce with economic growth, officials said Tuesday.

International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde and Cherie Blair, wife of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, will be speakers at the “World Assembly for Women in Tokyo” or “WAW! Tokyo.”

In an interview with the leading Nikkei business daily last month, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the conference would be a “Davos meeting for women,” referring to the World Economic Forum event held annually in the Swiss city.
