After stepping into the position, the new Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Liesje Schreinemacher, started an NGO consultation process. The aim was to get direct inputs from Civil Society Organisations for the ministry’s new policy.
Shereen Essof, Executive Director of Just Associates, shared a video message with the Minister during this consultation.
We welcome your commitment to strengthening civil society and local ownership in the Global South and to Shifting Power dynamics for greater autonomy, self-determination, and economic independence.
