Fiji and Indonesia to sign MOU on women’s empowerment

Fiji and Indonesia are to sign an agreement to cooperate on empowering women.

Fiji’s Minister of Social Welfare and Indonesia’s Minister of Women Empowerment and Child Protection met in Jakarta this week to discuss areas of common interest.

Fiji’s Dr Jiko Luveni and Indonesian minister Linda Amalia Sari have agreed to work together and share information on government policies on women empowerment, gender mainstreaming in government ministries, household economy and Indonesia’s task force on women and children trafficking.

Fiji and Indonesia already have a Development Cooperation Agreement.

Dr Luveni has also visited a Center for Women Cooperatives near Jakarta, which is organized by the Women’s Group in the area and acts as a business incubator.
Women at the centre produce seaweed ice cream, seaweed juice and sweets and seaweed cocktail. The minister is keen to explore similar opportunities following the MOU signing.
