Ivanka Trump has been attending the Summit of Americas in Lima, Peru where she told reporters she will unveil an economic empowerment program for women in the region.

“I’m extremely excited for my visit and look forward to highlighting the important work that the U.S. government and this administration are doing to empower women economically both in the region and elsewhere around the globe,” Ivanka said during a press conference.

President Trump’s daughter is part of the U.S. delegation to the summit, which is now being led by VP Mike Pence after an apparent chemical weapons attack in Syria forced the president to change his plans.

Ivanka is making it a point to visit women-owned businesses in the region while in Peru, tweeting, “This morning, I met with women business leaders to discuss how we can further empower women in our hemisphere to take on leadership roles in the workplace and the importance of public-private partnerships to ensure women can thrive in the economy.”
