management positions in policy-making process for 2021-2030 aims to promote
women’s potential and creativeness towards realising the sustainable
development goals on gender equality and women’s empowerment.

Meanwhile, the country aims to have 75 percent of women in the personnel
planning scheme receiving training by 2025, and increase the percentage to 90
percent five years later. In areas resided by ethnic minority groups, leaders
must be ethnic people in line with the population structure.

targets, including completing policies and legal framework, improving
efficiency of implementation of policies on female leaders and female leader
works, enhancing training, and raising public awareness of gender equality and
the roles of women in the new period, among others./.
