DUBAI, 30th March, 2022 (WAM) — The United Arab Emirates has made incredible progress in empowering women, a Greek parliament member said during the World Government Summit on Tuesday.
“Well, it was a very successful summit and the most important what I believe is that we could see what progress has been done for women,” Sofia Voultepsi, who is also the Greek Deputy Minister of Migration and Asylum in charge of Integration, said in a statement to the Emirates News Agency (WAM).
“As a journalist first and second, I’ve been the first spokeswoman in Greece in 2014 [so not many years ago] it is imperative when I travel to your country and see from time to time the progress for women,” she noted.
Women are the half of the world, Voultepsi said, noting that “Empowering women is critical as they have the skills and the intelligence to move forward and go ahead [for all the humanity not only for women but even for men].”
