Ivanka Trump is set to conquer Japan as she visits the Asian country next week to give a speech at a symposium on women’s empowerment in Tokyo. The Japanese government has made the announcement.
It was Prime Minister Shinzo Abe who made the invitation to Ivanka.
Ivanka serves as a senior adviser to her father, President Donald Trump. Ivanka’s November 3 speech at the fourth annual World Assembly for Women will happen ahead of the President’s visit to Japan slated on November 5.
President Trump will also visit South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines for his trip to Asia, his first as American President.
Ivanka will be joined at the symposium by more than 60 political, business and international organization representatives from Japan and overseas. The Foreign Ministry of Japan also announced that among those who will join the presidential daughter and White House senior adviser are World Bank Chief Executive Officer Kristalina Georgieva and Paramila Patten, U.N. special representative on sexual violence in conflict.
Japan launched the symposium in 2014, with the intent of modeling it after the World Economic Forum held yearly in Davos, Switzerland.
Ivanka has been also closely meeting with advocacy groups and bipartisan lawmakers on Capitol Hill, including Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, to expand the child tax credit. Rubio said in an earlier interview that the child tax credit has “universal support” in Congress.
Ivanka also went to Bucks County, Pennsylvania, for a town hall, her first public push for the policy.
Ivanka also attended the W20 Summit in April at the invitation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. She also met leaders during the United Nations General Assembly in New York including Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj, International Committee for the Red Cross President Peter Maurer, Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands. Ivanka also joined British Prime Minister Theresa May in an event combating human trafficking.
