Ivanka Trump lands in Africa to promote USA jobs plan for women

During the meeting, Trump said she supported initiatives to boost opportunities for women looking to start up business in Ethiopia and announced that a loan of $260,000 would be granted to help the company Azalech Coffee Roasting expand. Accompanying her will be Mark Green, administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development.

Ivanka is due to visit Ethiopia and Ivory Coast over the next four days and is flying commercial, rather than using a US State Department aircraft.

The First Daughter touched down in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, early Sunday and took to Instagram to share photos of her first meeting as the head of WGDPI.

OPIC provides loans, loan guarantees and political risk insurance, funding projects that stretch across continents and industries.

Trump will discuss USA -led initiatives to promote opportunities for women's inclusion and seek to learn about ongoing efforts in meetings with Ethiopian government officials and the African Union, as well as engagements with women leaders in the business community and civil society.

While in Ethiopia, they will be joined by OPIC Acting President David Bohigian.

Ivanka Trump has made women's economic empowerment a centerpiece of her White House portfolio.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are officially legally single but not divorced
Pitt and Jolie got married in 2014 but two years later, they filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. Two days ago, it was confirmed that the ex-couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are now officially single.

Mr Trump, however, upset many in the continent past year after he reportedly used the word "shithole" to describe African nations.

Later in the trip, she plans to meet with Ethiopian President Sahle-Work Zewde and Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. The first daughter will be joined in the Ivory Coast by a congressional delegation that will include Sen.

Launched in February, the Women's Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) initiative aims to train women worldwide to help them get well-paying jobs.

However, Ivanka Trump's efforts could be complicated by the President's own remarks after his private comments about "s***hole countries" in Africa and other regions were leaked to journalists.

Daniel Runde, of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said Ivanka Trump was strategically building on the work of past administrations, calling her an effective "goodwill ambassador" for the issues, and a smart emissary to send to Africa.

Marakle Tesfaye, an activist, said, however, "I think she's coming genuinely to empower women and it's good that she's coming because she will push forward our agenda".

Ivanka Trump, who has been successful in fashion business, is estimated to have net worth $300 million, while her husband Jared Kushner, who runs real-estate business, could be $800 million, according to USA media reports. "Ivanka Trump is playing a similar role to the role that Secretary Clinton played".
