THERE is a need to train women in basic business skills.

Women in Business president Dr Nur Bano Ali said the second training of women was aimed at empowering and equipping them with business management skills.

On Saturday, more than 30 women attended the second seminar in Suva.

Dr Ali said women generally lacked confidence, saying not many women participated in business.

She said it was important to encourage the participation of women in all commercial sectors.

Dr Ali said when it came to women in business, Fiji was improving.

"Before women were concerned about what their husbands would say," she said.

"Now their husbands encourage them to come forward.

Dr Ali said three women travelled from Sigatoka while another travelled from Navua for the training on book keeping, marketing and business financing.

She said the first training session was held before Mother's Day and the topics comprised cash flow, business planning, budget and forecast.

Dr Ali said women were being taught the importance of record keeping, lifting business standards and maintaining discipline in all aspects of their lives.
