With pictures, statistics and text records, the exhibition reflected the overall development of Macao's women and children and promoted the spirits of self-esteem, self-confidence, self-reliance and self-improvement.

At the Women's Development Forum of the Greater Bay Area, senior officers from women's federations gathered together to discuss the direction of the women and children's work in this area in the future in the hope of setting up a mechanism for coordinating them with the country's development strategy.
