Dubai-based Arabian Business magazine has named six Saudi women among the 50 most influential business figures in the Arab world.
According to Arab News, the list, published last week, includes prominent women who have worked hard for their identity in the region.
All the honored Saudi women have played a significant role in the development of the kingdom.
