Descript 20 p


Considerable differences remain in women's and men's access to the potential benefits of globalization and to power in economic structures in their respective societies. Seizing the advantages of globalization requires the mobilization of all development forces and actors. Women represent half of all actors that need to be involved to obtain this goal. Promoting women's participation in national and international markets is a recurring theme in key issues of UNCTAD's agenda as diverse as foreign direct investment, trade in services, commodities, enterprise development and the potential opportunities offered by new technologies such as information and communication technologies. The Expert Meeting may wish to address the gender component in these areas with the following objectives: (a) to propose ways to improve the contribution of women in developing the competitiveness of their countries and regions; (b) to suggest practical policy proposals as elements of a strategy for the international community and member States to improve the role of women in participating more widely in the economic process of trade and foreign investment; and (c) to build networks for the support and empowerment of women to engage more effectively in economic activity
