Jumla District Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI) has committed to increase the minimum number of reserved seats for women on their Executive Committee to 33%.

The DCCI tabled and agreed to pass RAP3 CONNECT’s policy reform “Female Representation on District Chamber of Commerce & Industry Executive Committees" recommending a minimum reservation of 33% for women members at their Annual General Meeting on 16th September 2018.

To date, Bajua, Dadeldhura, Dailekh and Doti DCCIs have passed the policy reform paper.  Last week, Doti DCCI held their first Executive Committee election since adopting the reform and successfully appointed 7 women to the Committee, exceeding the 33% minimum.
