Maroc-Etats Unis: Le Président Donald J. Trump: Le Maroc, l’un des modèles “les plus distingués” de l’Initiative de développement économique des femmes (W-GDP)
In a message addressed by the President Donald Trump during the W-GDP first anniversary, celebrated in Washington on Wednesday the 12th February, 2020, he announced that one of the most significant milestones of the W-GDP initiative have been Morocco, amending laws in order to promote women’s economic empowerment by enchasing women’s prosperity and lands rights, respectively. He also praised the efforts made by Cote d’Ivoire in this regard.

In February 2019, President Trump, established the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) Initiative, the first whole-of-government effort to advance global women’s economic empowerment. 

One year later, the President announced that the W-GDP has impacted 12 million women in different places around the world, the ultimate goal of this initiative being to economically empower 50 million across the developing world by 2025. 

In this regard, the Advisor to the President, Ivanka Trump, commended Morocco’s government efforts for carrying out important and bold reforms. She also emphasized, at the opening session of the "Global Women's Forum 2020", that Morocco has succeeded in recent years in "introducing important legislative reforms that serve the interests of women and increase their level of empowerment".

As 90 countries across the world still have laws that restrict women’s access to the same jobs and sectors as men, the W-GDP aims at impacting women’s livelihoods through innovative new programs and projects across all of the three W-GDP pillars : “Women Prospering in the Workforce “, “Women Succeeding as Entrepreneurs”, and, “Women Enabled in the Economy”. 

As the W-GDP reaches a first milestone, the “United States stands eager and ready to work with every country willing to take action to address discriminatory, legal, and regulatory barriers that hold women back and impede economic progress for all ».
