VIJAYAWADA: Singapore India Development Association (SINDA) head Renjala Balachandran said that Indian women were showing a lot of enthusiasm and energy and could make great progress in the field of entrepreneurship if provided with proper guidance.

Renjala Balachandran, who works in the field of women empowerment in Singapore, was present at KBN College in Vijayawada to participate in the seminar on ‘Women Entrepreneurship-A Global Perspective’  Wednesday. Speaking at the seminar, she stressed the importance of channelising women’s skills and entrepreneurial abilities for the development of economy and also to ensure gender equality.

The two-day UGC-sponsored seminar was aimed at discussing various topics on women entrepreneurship and empowerment.
