Family and Social Policies Minister Fatma Şahin and Industry Ministry Nihat Ergün signed a protocol on Feb. 10 to support female entrepreneurship, disabled war veterans and relatives of fallen soldiers. 

The government also plans to open nurseries for women workers with children in Organized Industrial Zones (OSB) especially in industries that are female intensive like textiles. 

Ergün said the protocol would include training programs, seminars and competitions to bolster women entrepreneurs. 

“With today’s protocol we especially want to address the problems facing women from education to production by creating special projects, increasing the number of entrepreneurs, capital, and obstacles to financing,” said Şahin. 

Şahin stressed that she was particularly excited about the nurseries.
