  • Ivanka Trump in Ethiopia hails Addis Ababa as 'Africa's highest city'

Far from the din of Washington, Ivanka Trump toured businesses run by women in Ethiopia on Sunday while promoting a White House global economic program for women.

Activist Marakie Tesfaye, who founded a group in Ethiopia for women, welcomed the attention, saying: "I think she's coming genuinely to empower women and it's good that she's coming because she will push forward our agenda".

The Women's Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP), which was launched in February, coincides with President Trump's proposed cuts to foreign aid, and a ban on United States aid to health groups that promote or provide abortions.

She will be joined in Ivory Coast by a U.S. congressional delegation that will include U.S. Sen.

For Ivanka Trump, those challenges come with the territory. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a close ally of the White House.

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

Daniel Runde of the Center for Strategic and International Studies said Ivanka Trump was strategically building on the work of past administrations.

Ivanka Trump's trip comes not long after first lady Melania Trump did a solo tour of the continent with a focus on child well-being. The president has not been kind in his remarks about Africa and its migrants.

The Trump administration's policy in Africa has focused on the war on terror and trying to manage the growing political and economic influence of China and Russian Federation on the continent.

The new global women's initiative involves the State Department, the National Security Council and other US agencies. It aims to coordinate current programs and develop new ones to assist women in job training, financial support, legal or regulatory reforms and other areas.

For parts of the trip, Ivanka and Green will be joined David Bohigian, acting president of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), as well as Kristalina Georgieva, interim president of the World Bank Group, which is hosting the summit.

President Donald Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, has arrived in Ethiopia to promote a USA government initiative aimed at advancing women's participation in the workplace. She said she was pleased to begin in the country with Africa's second-highest population.

Experts praised the government-wide approach, which will incorporate new and existing programs, though some stressed that it was early in the process.

Hillary Clinton, as USA secretary of state, "provided high-level attention to these issues", said Runde, who previously worked for USAID and is an informal adviser to the administration on development policy.
