Finance minister named Czech Republic’s most influential woman by Forbes
Finance Minister Alena Schillerová has been named the Czech Republic’s most influential woman by Forbes magazine. It is the first time Ms Schillerova came first on the list. Last year she came in second behind Věra Jourová, the current Vice President of the European Commission for Values and Transparency.
The finance minister administers the CZK 1.7 trillion state budget, a role that is especially important during the coronavirus pandemic where a multitude of relief measures for the Czech economy are being put in place.
Ms Jourová came in second, followed by Prague’s High State Attorney Lenka Bradáčová in third place. Meanwhile, Ms Schillerová’s colleague, Labour Minister Jana Maláčová, came in second on Forbes’ list.
