Shen Yueyue, vice-chairperson of the Standing Committee of National People's Congress and president of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), met with a visiting group of the All-China Women's Federation Hong Kong Delegates Association Limited in Beijing on September 12, 2014.
Shen expressed her warm welcome to all the association's visiting group members and her appreciation to the contribution the association has made in promoting the development of women's cause and in safeguarding the prosperity and stability of Hong Kong.
Shen noted, the report of Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Leung Chun-ying has been examined at the 10th meeting of the 12th National People's Congress Standing Committee and decisions on the election methods of Hong Kong's chief executive in 2017 and its Legislative Council in 2016 were also made on August 31, 2014. Shen noted these were important decisions on Hong Kong's democratic development process.
Shen hoped the association can unite all the Hong Kong citizens and help young people realize the illegal nature of the Occupy Central movement so as to maintain the stable situation and prosperous development of Hong Kong.
Leader of the visiting group Wong Yeung Chi Hung spoke at the meeting about the work the association had done in recent years. She said the association will on the one hand support the Hong Kong SAR government's work and help more women play more prominent roles in the economic and social development of Hong Kong and on the other hand, will strengthen the communication and cooperation with women's federations in Chinese mainland.
Meng Xiaosi, vice-president of ACWF and member of the Secretariat of the ACWF attended the meeting.
