(BBC)President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, has arrived in Ethiopia to promote a US government initiative aimed at advancing women’s participation in the workplace.

The initiative aims to benefit 50 million women in developing countries by 2025.

Ms. Trump will visit women working in the coffee industry and a female-run textile facility.

She will also visit Ivory Coast during her four-day tour of Africa.

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

According to the initiative’s website, low participation of women in the formal labour markets impedes economic growth and poverty reduction in developing countries.

The project is financed by a $50m (£38m) fund within the US international development aid agency (USAid).
