The All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) held a seminar on October 26 in Beijing to improve the work done countrywide to promote legislation on family education.
Deng Li, vice-president and member of the Secretariat of the ACWF took part in the seminar and delivered a talk.
Deng said that some provinces, municipalities and regions have made progress in promoting the legislation of family education since Chinese President Xi attached high importance to the construction of traditional family virtues, as stated in his recent speeches.
Meanwhile, Deng noted that the federation should actively work in cooperation with legislative organizations to carry out such work. She urged women's federations at all levels across the nation to make concerted efforts to advance development on the issue.
In addition, Deng expressed her hope that relevant official branches and the Department of Education can work together to carry forward progress.
Chen Xiurong, member of Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) and deputy director of the NPC Internal Judicial Affairs Committee, also attended the event and emphasized the importance of formulating related legislation and rules in the promotion of family education.
Chen, who also serves as president of China Family Education Institute, noted in her speech that the institute would take advantage of all available resources to enhance theoretical and academic research so as to facilitate relevant legislative work.
Leaders from southwest China's Chongqing Municipality, north China's Shanxi Province and east China's Shandong Province all introduced the latest achievements made locally in legislation related to family education.
Those in attendance at the seminar also included: Du Yaling, director of the Law Department of Social Administration of the Legal Affairs Office of the State Council; Ye Qilian, director of the Education Office of the NPC and Health Committee; Huang Xingsheng, deputy-director of the Policies and Regulations Department of the Ministry of Education; Li Mingshun, secretary of the Party committee of the China Women's University; Liu Taigang, professor of the School of Public Administration of Renmin University of China; Fu Guoliang, vice-president of China Family Education Institute; and, staff members from other grassroots women's federations.
