Muhammad-Bande described them as “outstanding candidates” and urged nations to vote for them.

Eghobamien-Mshelia pledged robust gender programmes for member states.

“We have a long way to go to realise gender equality. For me, Artificial Intelligence and robotics are sub-sectors to understand in promoting gender issues.

“As the digital economy is unfolding, gender issues should be central. A general recommendation on gender and digital economy is something I will work with you to achieve”, she said.
