Song Meets Mongolian Women's Delegation
Song Xiuyan, Vice-president and First Member of the Secretariat of the Allchina Women's Federation (ACWF), met a women's delegation from Mongolia in Beijing on August 14, 2017. The delegation, headed by Tsogzolmaa Tsedenbal, President of Social Democracy Mongolian Women's Association and Member of State Great Hural, visited China at the invitation of the ACWF. During the meeting, Song outlined China's economic achievements, social progress and development of Chinese women since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC). She noted the CPC Central Committee, with President Xi Jinping as its core, attaches great importance to women's development, and that it has taken measures to safeguard and advance women's cause.
Song also mentioned both the Belt and Road Initiative and the new concept of "A Global Community with a Shared Future." Both initiatives, proposed by President Xi, are set to bring mutual benefits to the neighboring countries. She called on the two nations to adhere to the concepts, enhance exchanges and cooperation, and promote friendship between the two nations for a shared future.
Song said, under the leadership of the Party, the ACWF is currently striving for two State-set "Centenary Goals" — namely, to build a moderately prosperous society by 2020, and to build a modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced and harmonious by 2049. Now the federation is making efforts to embrace the upcoming 19th National Congress of the CPC with positive results.
Tsogzolmaa said she appreciated the meeting with ACWF'S leaders, and that she would like to enhance friendship and cooperation between the two countries, especially among women. She expressed a desire to learn from China's advanced experiences in areas of economic reform, social governance and women's causes. Yang Liu, Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, also held a meeting with the delegation.
