Empowering Ethiopian women entrepreneurs in textile industry
Ethiopia is the fifth fastest-growing garment producing country in the world. The textiles sector employs mostly women. ITC works with its local partner, the Center for Accelerated Women’s Economic Empowerment, to provide women with capacity building, training and support, enabling them to better meet international buyers’ requirements.
In line with these efforts, global leaders are discussing best practices to advance women’s participation in the private sector during the 14th session of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD14) in Nairobi, Kenya, from 17-22 July 2016.
