Song Xiuyan, Vice-President and First Member of the Secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), proposed to implement the spirit of the "Two Sessions" to advance the work of the ACWF.

She attended the conference held among ACWF’s officials, on March 22, and emphasized, "We must study and implement the spirit of the Two Sessions, integrate our thinking and actions into the major decisions of the Central Committee of Communist Party of China (CPC) with Xi Jinping at its core."

She noted that we should organize and mobilize women to follow the Party, vigorously promote the great national spirit, and make contributions to building a moderately prosperous society in all aspects.

We should also make great efforts in the establishment of a modern socialist country and the great rejuvenation of China, she added.

Zhang Xiaolan, Vice-President and Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, presided over the meeting.

Over the past five years, the Party and the State have recorded historic achievements and shifts, thanks to the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee with Xi Jinping at its core and the scientific guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.

The Constitutional Amendment, adopted during the first session of the 13th National People's Congress, cleared the leadership of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era in the country's political and social life.

Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, was elected Chinese President and Chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC) of the People's Republic of China (PRC) by a unanimous vote.

It fully reflects the common aspirations of the entire party and Chinese people of all ethnic groups.

Once again, it showed the world that General Secretary Xi Jinping is the core of the Party, commander of the army, and leader of the people in the new era, supported by the entire Party and loved by the people, she added.

Song proposed that women's federations at all levels must fully understand the great significance of the "Two Sessions" from political, overall, and strategic perspectives and study and implement the spirit of an important series of speeches delivered by General Secretary Xi Jinping during the meetings, especially at the closing session of the 13th National People's Congress, thus strengthening the ‘four consciousnesses’, adhering to the ’four confidences’ and improving political stance."

In addition, we should always use the Xi Jinping Thought to arm our minds, guide our practice, and promote our work. We should also firmly safeguard General Secretary Xi Jinping's core position, and assert the authority of the Party Central Committee and its unified and centralized leadership.

Moreover, we will keep in line with the Party Central Committee, with Xi Jinping as the core, on political standpoint, orientation, principles, and path.

Song continued that,"we should advance women's understanding of Xi Jinping Thought and strengthen the foundation for their following of the Party; actively carry out activities for constitutional study, publicity and education and guide women to enhance their constitutional awareness. Thus, they will be loyal to the constitution, consciously abide by the Constitution and defend the Constitution.

We will vigorously carry out the themed activities of"Loyal to the Party, Women Make achievements in a New Era" to guide women to promote great national spirit, and play a unique role in social life and family life.

Song emphasized that we must adhere to the people-centered development concept, make communication with women and women-oriented services the lifeline of women's federations, and earnestly perform basic functions.

She also noted that we should implement the major decisions and arrangements of the Party Central Committee on deepening reforms, and make greater efforts and take more practical measures to promote the reform of women's federations by focusing on maintaining and strengthening our political, progressive and overall principles.

It is necessary to implement the spirit of the two sessions as the impetus to prepare for the opening of the 12th National Women’s Congress of China. Thus we can advance the women’s cause and the work of women's federations in the new era.

Deng Li, a member of the NPC Standing Committee and Vice President and Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, and Zhao Donghua, a member of the Standing Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), and former vice-president and member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, , conveyed the spirit of the "Two Sessions" at the meeting.

Members of the ACWF Secretariat, representatives of ACWF’s functional departments and organizations directly affiliated to the ACWF participated in the meeting.
