    MOI: "A great deal of our awareness of interest continues to be generated on the position, role and status of women in society. There is an ever-increasing realisation that the solution to the political, social and economic problems faced by various nations is linked intimately with the level and situation of women who live in those countries. Specific ways and means of integrating them into the global, regional and national development process for the overall benefit of mankind remains to a large extent to be effective."
