Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy Growth that works for everyone

As trade remains crucial to economic growth and globalisation, it is imperative that groups such as small businesses and women entrepreneurs have access to the opportunities flowing from trade.

SMEs are the backbone of most economies and women business owners are also crucial to economic growth. According to research by consultancy, McKinsey, advancing women’s equality could add $28 trillion to global GDP by 2025 – equivalent to adding a new United

States and China.

There is a need to do more to support and drive greater engagement by women as business leaders and encourage their participation in global markets.

More could also be done to promote the opportunities for young women to develop career paths in global trade.

Certain areas of trade support services, such as trade finance, logistics, supply chain management, customs and freight forwarding, have traditionally seen low levels of participation by women; this needs to change.

The key to encouraging greater participation in global trade is to ensure access to the right training and technical support, as well as platforms to help connect women globally. GTPA is on a mission to collaborate with existing organisations globally to support and advance the engagement of women entrepreneurs in global trade.
