Following the World Bank Summit, the First Lady of Côte d’Ivoire, Dominique Ouattara, hosted a state dinner for Summit dignitaries, including Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump, the U.S. Congressional Delegation led by Senator Lindsey Graham and USAID Administrator Mark Green. Leaders reaffirmed their commitment to the underlying goals of the United States' Women's Global Development and Prosperity Initiative, and their desire to work collectively toward building economies that invite contributions of women entrepreneurs, specifically in the fields of technology and agribusiness. They noted the outsized impact such efforts could have in improving the lives of women, their families, and communities across the globe.
