A national seminar on trade and gender will be held in Luanda, Angola, on the 21st of November of 2013 as part of the project "Enhancing Capacities of the Republic of Angola to mainstream gender in Trade Policy".
The workshop will provide the opportunity to present the findings of the study Who is benefiting from trade liberalization in Angola? A gender perspective.
The study analyzes the ways in which trade policies and the patterns of structural transformation have had an impact on women in Angola, and it explores possible strategies to encourage the inclusion of gender considerations in trade policy formulation and implementation.
The workshop will bring together policy makers, trade negotiators and national stakeholders, and will provide them with the opportunity to share ideas and best practices on how to ensure that trade becomes more instrumental to the achievement of inclusive development and that all segments of the population, including women, benefit from it.
