Meetings with social partners

This year International Women's Day, March 8, is of particular significance as it coincides with the United Nations Beijing+10 meeting to be held in New York. The aim of the meeting is to review the position of women in a number of areas, social, economical and political.

As part of its activities commemorating Women's Day, the NCW executive committee is once again meeting different stakeholders and social partners to discuss some of the issues that require particular attention and to discuss how best we can work together for the benefit of society.
