PM Abe explained that this year’s theme “WAW! For All” is a message calling on women and men of all positions and generations to think and act together for the improvement of women’s status, and that he would like to incorporate specific opinions and ideas voiced during the symposium into the government’s women’s empowerment policy.

The women ambassadors expressed expectations for “WAW! 2015,” explained about their respective countries’ initiatives in the field of women’s empowerment, and made proposals for Japan. The participants actively exchanged opinions. The dinner ended in a friendly atmosphere.
