Relevant authorities are urged to better protect rural women's legal land-use rights, according to a senior government official in charge of women-related issues. 

"The registration of contract and management rights of rural lands can better secure women's legal land-use rights/ Women's federations at all levels should coordinate the work of other government agencies to help rural women solve related issues," said member of the Secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) Tan Lin at a inspection visit in southwest China's Sichuan Province. 

Tan carefully inspected the contracts and licenses issued by the government to the farmers who had complete the registration process and put high value on the work conducted by Sichuan Women's Federation to safeguard women's land-use rights. 

Tan also exchanged in-depth ideas on the implementation of the pilot program and stressed that women's tangible land-use rights must be assured. 

The Chinese government aims to expand the pilot program regarding the registration and confirmation of rural land-use rights in 2014, which allows farmers to transfer and mortgage their land-use rights, or turn rights into shares in large-scale farming entities.
