'Women's economic inclusion a must for dev'

State Minister for Women and Children affairs Meher Afroz Chumki said economic inclusion of women a must for the social empowerment.

"Bangladesh is among the top 12 countries in the world with a population of over 20 million, who achieved 6.5 per cent growth rate in 2016- that too in the face of global crisis and financial meltdown.

The country's path towards achieving middle income status must bring about inclusive and equitable growth particularly for women," Chumki said while addressing a women conference at Spectra Convention centre in the capital.
