Bangladeshi Government Adviser, Top U.N. Official Discuss Gender Equality


A women's and social welfare adviser to the Bangladesh caretaker government has discussed the issue of gender equality with the president of the United Nations General Assembly.

A statement from the Bangladeshi mission to the U.N. says Geeteara Safiya Choudhury met with President Haya Rashed Al Khalifa to discuss Bangladesh's efforts to promote women's empowerment through microcredit and education programs.

The statement says President Al Khalifa noted that Bangladesh's gender equality programs should be eligible for financing from a recently-established Islamic Development Bank poverty alleviation fund.

Choudhury also spoke at a General Assembly panel about women's empowerment where she emphasized the accomplishments of Bangladesh's microcredit programs.
