Major aims of the session were conveying the intentions of the General Secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Xi Jinping's speech while meeting with the newly elected leadership of the ACWF, and allocating the tasks for the next five years set at the 11th National Women's Congress of China (NWCC).

Member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee Li Yuanchao called on members of the ACWF's Executive Committee to unswervingly take the socialist road with Chinese characteristics, adhere to the leadership of the CPC, safeguard women's and children's rights and interests based on the law, and unite and lead all women to contribute to the 'two centenary goals' and the 'Chinese Dream' of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation set at the 18th CPC National Congress in November 2012.

Vice Chairperson of the Standing Committee of the 12th National People's Congress (NPC) and President of the ACWF Shen Yueyue urged members of the ACWF's Executive Committee to study and implement the intention of General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee Xi Jinping's speech, implement the tasks set at the 11th NWCC, and enhance the construction of the ACWF's newly-elected Executive Committee.

Vice President and First Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF Song Xiuyan presided over the meeting.

Also in attendance were Vice Presidents of the ACWF Meng Xiaosi, Reziwan Aibai, Jin Nuo, Cheng Hong, Xie Ru, Cui Li, Zhao Donghua, Yu Hongqiu, Yin Hong, Fan Jiying, Cui Yu, Dong Youxin, Song Yushui, Members of the Secretariat of the ACWF Yu Hongqiu, Jiao Yang, Deng Li, Tan Lin as well as other members of the ACWF's Executive Committee.

President Xi while meeting with the newly elected leadership of the ACWF on October 31, 2013 underlined the importance of gender equality, calling for full play to be given to the role of women in order to help achieve the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Noting that China is facing a more arduous task in economic and social development, he said that the country needs more contributions and wisdom from women than ever before.

Xi called for the process of China's development to be integrated with promotion of gender equality, which will ensure women to exercise their rights of democracy in accordance with law, take part in economic and social development and share the fruits of reform. He also asked women's federation officials at all levels to learn more about the situations at grassroots level in order to better help women and urged authorities at all levels to attach more importance and offer more assistance to women's federations, to improve the environment for women to develop their livelihoods, and to severely punish those who infringe on women's rights.

A total of 296 delegates to the 11th NWCC were elected as members of the 11th Executive Committee of the ACWF in Beijing during the second plenary meeting of the 11th NWCC on October 30, 2013.

The four-day 11th NWCC, which aims to draw up a blueprint for the development of Chinese women for the next five years, was held at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing from October 28-31, 2013.
