Earlier that day PM Modi met PM Mark Rutte and King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands. Máxima’s meeting with the Indian Prime Minister also has to do with her role as UN Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development. Her Majesty is committed to women empowerment which is also high on agenda for PM Modi. Dr Vikas Chaturvedi: “PM Modiji briefly touched upon this subject during his address to the Indian community in The Hague. Women on Wings is committed to partner with mission of PM Modi on women empowerment.” So far Women on Wings has already co-created 221,000 jobs for women in rural India.
