Ivanka Trump, U.S. President Donald Trump’s daughter and senior adviser, arrived on Wednesday in Morocco for a three-day visit to promote female empowerment.

This is her third overseas trip this year to promote the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative, which was launched in February to benefit women in developing countries.

According to the U.S. embassy in Rabat, Ivanka Trump will meet with Moroccan officials and local leaders in Rabat and Casablanca to discuss how to help women in the region gain economic independence.

She will also meet female leaders at the high school of aeronautics in Casablanca, and at an experimental farm in Sidi Kacem in central Morocco.

In a statement published by the White House before the visit, Ivanka Trump said Morocco is a valued U.S. ally that has “taken strides” under Moroccan King Mohammed VI to promote gender equality.
