In her address, Minister Koonjoo-Shah highlighted that the competition aims at encouraging women to develop entrepreneurship skills. She thus commended all participants for their projects, and remarked that women entrepreneurs greatly contribute to the socio-economic development of the country.

Government, she underlined, lays much emphasis on the development of the human capital of our country, since Mauritius does not have natural resources. As such, the empowerment of women entrepreneurs is amongst Government’s priorities, she reassured.
