Minister of Women, Family and Children Neziha Laabidi said, during a hearing session with the Parliamentary committee of Health and Social Affairs, that the budget allocated to her department has increased by 6.8% compared to 2017 (134 million 275 thousand dinars), underlining that the strategy of the ministry aspires, by 2020, to empower women, to provide a good education for their children, to build a balanced family and to strengthen the rights of older people.

As regards the portfolio of women and family, which was allocated 10.2% of the overall budget of the Ministry, Laabidi pointed out that this amount will be devoted to the implementation of five programmes including that of the economic empowerment of women.
