World Economic Forum 2012

The Minister of Family and Social Policies Ms. Fatma Şahin delivered a speech at the conference themed "Equality between Men and Women" during her visit to Davos on the occasion of the World Economic Forum sessions. Noting that the whole world keeps track of Turkey's recent progress in social aspects and Turkey has proved herself to be an important country of reference in social matters as well as her notable economic growth, Ms. Şahin remarked "Our record of fundamental rights and freedoms, social policies and practices in the last decade has received a great deal of attention. Many countries like to use our intended activities for 2015-2020 as a model."
