WASHINGTON (AP) — White House adviser Ivanka Trump is planning a trip to Africa to promote a global women's initiative she's leading.

President Donald Trump's daughter will visit Ethiopia and Ivory Coast over four days this month. The White House says her schedule includes a women's economic empowerment summit in Ivory Coast, as well as site visits and meetings with political leaders, executives and female entrepreneurs in both countries.

Joining her on the trip will be Mark Green, administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development.

It will be her first visit to the region since the White House launched the Women's Global Development and Prosperity Initiative in February.

She says in a statement to The Associated Press that she's "excited to travel Africa" to advance the initiative.
