He said the conducive policies and strategies put in place over the past years enabled millions of women to generate wealth and contribute share for the economic growth of the country.

Women should work hand in hand in order to ensure the sustainability of ongoing economic growth and make upcoming elections peaceful and credible, Abadula reiterated.
The State Chief on the occasion handed over prizes to women development heroes who saved from 12,000 up to 4 million birr by engaging in various development activities.
