Ivanka Trump touts 'womenomics' on Japan visit, despite visible gap

US President Donald Trump's daughter and senior advisor Ivanka Trump on Friday spoke about women's participation in the economy at the World Assembly of Women here, an annual conference sponsored by the Japanese government, the media reported.

Ivanka will later hold talks with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to lay the groundwork for her father's trip, which begins in Japan on Sunday.

Ivanka Trump said at a Tokyo conference on women's advancement on Friday that harassment of women in the workplace can not be tolerated.

Accusations of groping, forced kissing and walking unannounced into changing areas at beauty pageants were made against Trump when he was running for President.

The issue of sexual harassment has been in the spotlight since bombshell claims against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, with allegations emerging against a host of others in the entertainment industry.

"This isn't a woman's issue, it's a family issue", she said.

"All too often, our workplace culture fails to treat women with appropriate respect", she said, quoted in AFP. "This takes many forms including harassment which can never be tolerated".

"This is my first visit to Japan, and the warmth you have shown us, the beauty of your landscape, and the vibrancy of your culture are truly incredible gifts to all who come to this country", she said.

Trump said United States and Japanese societies are at a "critical juncture" with the opportunity to fully empower working women.

She said women should not be defined by whether they work inside or outside the home.

Trump said in Thursday's interview that Xi had been "pretty terrific" on North Korea and that "China is helping us", but is widely expected to urge Beijing to do more on the issue.

"Japan-US alliance is the cornerstone of that peace and stability, and alliance is stronger than ever", he said, adding that Abes success in reinforcing Japans strong ties with United States was one of the factors that led to his overwhelming electoral victory last month.

Abe announced Japan will provide $50 million to the World Bank-led Women Entrepreneurs Finance Initiative, a fund championed by her and established at the Group of 20 leaders' summit in July.
