Ivanka Trump will be at her father’s side as he takes his inaugural foreign trip this week visiting Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Vatican City and Italy.

According to the Associated Press, the first daughter will accompany the commander-in-chief on six of nine days of travel.

On the first leg of the trip in Saudi Arabia, she will hold a panel discussion with Saudi women to ascertain their accomplishments and challenges in the notoriously closed society.

She will also go with the president to the Western Wall in Israel. And while in Italy, she will meet with a Catholic Church-affiliated group that works on human trafficking.

Ivanka Trump has already traveled abroad on behalf of the administration, including a recent visit to Germany in which she met with Chancellor Angela Merkel.
