It is a pleasure for me to participate in this event to present a very important project of the WTO Chairs Program, which studies the interactions between trade, employment and decent work for women.

The global economy is not gender neutral. Data show that globally, women represent 38% of the workforce, but are paid only 77% of what men earn. Worldwide, 606 million women provide full-time unpaid care, compared to only 41 million men.

We can change this paradigm through trade. Inclusive trade can give women access to employment, decent work and economic empowerment. Trade can be a game changer by lifting women out of poverty and, consequently, their families as well.

Globally, women represent 33% of the workforce in exporting companies and 24% of the workforce in non-exporting companies. In addition, women represent 36% of the workforce of companies involved in global value chains and 38% of that of foreign-owned companies. This figure is 11 and 12 percentage points higher than that of companies that are not part of global value chains and are domestically owned.

ProChile’s Department of Gender and Indigenous Peoples conducted a study to gather information on the companies led by women, where they are located, what their exportable offer is and what kind of help they need to make the leap.
