[Brussels, 01 February 2011] EWL Executive Committee member Rada Boric last week met with with Croatian Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor to advocate for the opening of the Regional Centre for women’s entrepreneurship, and leadership in economy.

Predsjednica Vlade Republike Hrvatske Jadranka Kosor sastala se danas u Banskim dvorima s izvršnom direktoricom Centra za ženske studije Radom Bori? i Nenadom Klap?i?em, predstavnikom Hrvatske obrtni?ke komore.

Gospo?a Bori? zalaže se za osnivanje centra za žene obrtnice i poduzetnice, kako bi se i na taj na?in osnažilo zapošljavanje žena, a želja im je da centar ima regionalni karakter. Cilj inicijative povezati je putem Hrvatske obrtni?ke komore javni i civilni sektor, a Komora bi putem svojih regionalnih centara educirala žene u poduzetništvu. Kroz 118 podružnica HOK-a žene poduzetnice imale bi i druge oblike potpore.

Premijerka Kosor pozdravila je ideju osnivanja centra za žene obrtnice i poduzetnice te izrazila potporu Vlade nastojanjima da žene dobiju priliku ravnopravno se dokazati i u poduzetništvu.
