The Moroccan Ministry of Solidarity, Social Development, Equality, and the Family launched Monday extensive consultations on the national program to empower women economically by 2030.

This comes under the framework of a meeting organized by the technical committee in Rabat on Monday to follow up with the government equality plan “Ikram 2” covering 2017-2021.

The project aims to boost women's opportunities and enable them economically by issuing a strategic study on women's economic empowerment.

This can also be achieved by developing women's expertise in key vocational fields with prioritizing regional implementation.

According to the statement, the meeting falls under a series of talks and workshops that will be organized by the ministry between Feb. 25 and Feb 28. 2020 with key players in government sectors, national and international institutions, research centers, and civil community associations to address the national program.
