WASHINGTON (AP) — A new White House effort aims at helping 50 million women in developing countries to get ahead economically.

The Women's Global Development and Prosperity Initiative will involve the State Department, the National Security Council and other agencies. It aims to coordinate current programs and develop new ones to assist women in areas such as job training, financial support, and legal or regulatory reforms.

The initiative is led by President Donald Trump's daughter and senior adviser, Ivanka Trump. The president will sign a national security memorandum to officially launch the initiative Thursday, framing it as a way to promote stability around the world.

Ivanka Trump tells The Associated Press that she believes women are arguably the most under-tapped resource in the developing world for accelerating economic growth and prosperity.
