[dropcap font=”0″][/dropcap]A woman of great efficiency is capable of raising a happy family and contributing to society and national development as well, said U Soe Thane, Union Minister at President Office, at Women’s Forum Myanmar here on Saturday, sources said.
Despite more and more women holding higher positions in government and parliament, there still exist limitations on female participation in education, economy, health care and information in some parts of the world, he confessed, acknowledging women’s capacity to be key to economic growth.
Ms Jacqueline Franjou, CEO of Women’s Forum, pointed out the need for women to play a more important role in Myanmar and the ASEAN region, citing that their efficiency can help the economy and society grow.
Women’s Forum is designed to facilitate and increase the contribution of women to community, promote equal opportunities for women in all aspects of life and encourage debates on issues of public welfare, especially those affecting their lives.–Myat Thanda Maung
