The two met at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on October 22, 2012.

The 1990 Institute has sponsored the primary and high school education of 1,000 disadvantaged girls in northwest China's Shaanxi Province. Among them, 168 girls have since gone on to pursue higher education.

Koo said that they would continue supporting the college students under the Spring Bud project.

Former Vice-Chairperson of the Standing Committee of NPC and former President of the ACWF Gu Xiulian organized a banquet for the guests at the China Women's Activity Center in Beijing on October 20, 2012.

Also in attendance at the activities were vice presidents and members of the Secretariat of the ACWF Chen Xiurong and Zhao Donghua, as well as representatives of sponsored girls under the Spring Bud project.
