In April 2017, MAWE had organised SWEEP-2017 ie Sustainable Growth for Women Entrepreneurship through Export Promotion. The event hosted delegations from 12 countries, namely Afghanistan, Bangladesh, China, Egypt, Hong Kong, Maldives, Nepal, New York, Sri Lanka, Rwanda, South Africa and Turkey and more than 350 delegates from across India. SWEEP-2017 received leadership and mentoring from International Agencies like UN Women, ITC Geneva and Asia Foundation. Central and State Governments supported SWEEP-2017 through the ministries of MSME (Govt of India & Govt of Madhya Pradesh), Women & Child Development (Govt of Madhya Pradesh) and Renewable Energy (Govt of Madhya Pradesh). Women entrepreneurs interacted with and learnt from experts from Export Promotion Councils, Exim bank, credit rating agencies and corporates like Walmart, IBM and others.


SWEEP-2017 witnessed regional trade within SAARC countries and MOUs signed for business commitments. MSME women entrepreneurs also received orders from Egypt, South Africa, Maldives , etc. Above all, Indian MSME women entrepreneurs formed strong international networks which be further reiterated in SWEEP 2019. Moreover, this year, SWEEP aims to further increase interaction between the delegates and the experts through workshops for women entrepreneurs and exporters.
