Donald Trump Admin Announces Two Women Economic Empowerment Programmes in India

Trump said the initiative will aim to make resources available to women through education and vocational training, help women gain access to capital to execute on entrepreneurial ideas and aim to promote women's interests in countries where there are legal and cultural barriers hampering women's engagement.

The Trump administration has announced that it will launch two projects in India in partnership with the private sector as part of its historic initiative to empower 50 million women globally to tap their economic potential.

The proposed plan will offer the "first deliverables" of the National Quantum Initiative Act, a law passed by the previous Congress as an initiative to improve USA efforts on quantum technology, due to rising concerns of Chinese dominance over the United States in the race to deploy 5G mobile broadband technology and implementations of AI, a White House official said.

"It's a culmination of a lot of hard work but also really the beginning because the program's now stood up and we have to execute on a very ambitious goal", Trump said in an exclusive interview with ABC Abby Huntsman, co-host of "The View", following the launch of the initiative.

The initiative is led by President Donald Trump's daughter and senior adviser, Ivanka Trump.

The W-GDP initiative aims to reach 50 million women across the developing world from the start of the Trump Administration in 2017 to 2025. That position has been vacant since Trump took office - drawing criticism from some advocates - but the White House said it now has a candidate lined up for the job.

During the presidential campaign, Ivanka continuously reiterated her self-identified role as a "wife, mother, sister, daughter", however people have called her out for only being an ally when it serves the administration. And she recently advocated for the Women's Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment Act, which bolsters efforts focused on women by USAID.
