Women and children the most affected by Sri Lanka’s economic crisis – ESCAP
Women and children are the most affected by the economic crisis in Sri Lanka, according to the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP).
Head of the ESCAP Subregional Office for South and South-West Asia, Mikiko Tanaka claims that there is a greater possibility of safeguarding women and children within the family environment by promoting micro and small-scale women entrepreneurs.
She made these remarks during a special discussion held at the Ministry of Industries with Minister Ramesh Pathirana.
The ESCAP has already implemented several programs for promoting entrepreneurship within Sri Lanka, Mikiko Tanaka said, adding that it will further join hands with the country to overcome the crises.
