“It is the global community’s common aspiration to develop a more gender equal society and there is no doubt that Nevis is spearheading the needed actions,” he said.

“As many are aware, Taiwan has also joined forces with St. Kitts and Nevis since last year in empowering women in the Federation as employees, self-employed workers or entrepreneurs.
“We are pleased that this strong friendship has allowed us to craft a plethora of initiatives that contribute to the development of an incredible society, helping every woman succeed in whatever path she chooses,” he stated.
The ambassador described the exposition as a meaningful event which showcased the accomplishments of a group of self-made women and men after participating in a series of workshops hosted by the Department of Gender Affairs.
