Main objectives: 
1. Create an office of European Women's Business Ownership
2. Appoint a Women’s Enterprise Director
3. Collect data, produce annual policy and research updates
4. Enforce current gender equality legislation These policies replicate those put in place in 1988 in USA who then doubled the number of female entrepreneurs and increased jobs created. The mandatory element of data collection and procurement policy had the greatest effect.
