In her speech, Meng extended her appreciation to dozens of representatives from both domestic and abroad who have participated in discussions on topics such as women's leadership, women's empowerment, balancing work and life, and creativity and innovation over the past two days, suggesting that their ideas will inspire women to dream again and direct them on the way to success.

"Successful women have perseverance and the ability to get along well with others," concluded Meng.

Chew decided at the last minute that she would like to give the speech in Chinese instead of English, as she considered the conference a valuable opportunity to reunite with her fellow Chinese people. She pointed out that Chinese women are brave and have everything they need to make their dreams come true.
