It is hard to believe that ten years have passed since the death of King Hussein, the surprising decision to name then Prince Abdullah as heir, and then King Abdullah's investiture.

According to this article Queen Rania did attend the WEF:

"I attended an evening on the world's most powerful women; among the 100 names circulating, I found three Arab names: Queen Rania, Maha Al Ghoneim, and Zaha Hadid. Attendance does not mean approval, as every married man will say that his wife is the most powerful woman in the world."

Little Star, my understanding of this article is that there must have been a symposium about the worlds most powerful women and three Arab women were being discussed but weren't present. The writer mentions the Bahraini Culture Minister and others specifically in the context of see ing them but Rania's name is all that is mentioned not her presence.

'I attended an evening on the world's most powerful women; among the 100 names circulating, I found three Arab names: Queen Rania, Maha Al Ghoneim, and Zaha Hadid. Attendance does not mean approval, as every married man will say that his wife is the most powerful woman in the world.'

This means people were talking about these women. I don't think she was at WEF. We would have seen pictures from somewhere, if not in the Western Press then we would have heard in the Arabic Press.

The public debates are not the only aspect of the WEF. There are literally dozens of private sessions every day and events that aren't covered by the media. The author appears to be suggesting she was there so I'll take his word for it.

Well, we'll disagree because I think if the author had seen her in person he would have said so. He just says the names were 'circulating' - i.e. people talking about 3 arab names even though they weren't there.

i get the same impression of yamamah from the article,the writer just mention arab ladies among the worlds most powerful women list he is not saying they attend,i don't think she attend for simple reason that it's hard to don't find photos of her there just a single photo as we know who is QRania and how she attract media
by the way thanks Little_star for the article it's very intersting and informative.

If you see WEF site and search 2009 participant list, Queen Rania´s name isn´t there. And I´m sure if she was in Davos we saw pics of her as all years.

The list on the website is in relation to the public panel sessions, it doesn't include the workshops, seminars, dinners etc.

I agree Salma, we would have known if she was there even in an unofficial capacity, especially as she is on the WEF board.

Yeah I don't think Rania was there either.
The writer simply means that he attended an evening event on the 100 most powerful women in the world and the list included Rania's name.

This might be the event in question:
Forbes.com Dispatches From Davos Blog

Rania attended it last year.
