The All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) held a training session on cyberspace and new media in the city of Jiaxing, east China's Zhejiang Province, from April 23-26.

The training event aimed to convey Chinese President Xi Jinping's keynote speech and instructions on the work of cybersecurity and information digitization, and to make an arrangement for the building of online branches of women's federations in the new era.

President Xi, who is also general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), called for "keenly" grasping the historic opportunity for information digitization development in a bid to build the country's strength in cyberspace at a national conference in April.

During her talk at the training seminar's opening ceremony on April 23, Vice-President and Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF Xia Jie urged women's federations at all levels across the country to make a thorough learning and deep understanding of Xi's speech and rally their thoughts and actions around what he had talked about regarding the building of a powerful nation in cyberspace.

She emphasized that officials should press ahead with innovative reform and hardworking spirit in a bid to achieve concrete results in the construction of their online branches and the management of relevant work.

Professors and representatives from the Central Committee of the Communist Youth League, Peking University, Gsdata.cn, Tencent and several other leading internet companies as well as websites in China were invited to give lectures about the development trend of internet and new media, and the organization of online to offline activities.

Officials from women's federations in Fujian, Tianjin, Inner Mongolia, Jilin and several other provincial regions shared their experiences and insights on the use of internet and new media in their work.

According to the ACWF, the building of online branches has become a major channel for nationwide women's federations to continue with their reform over the past years. They have set up nearly 400 new media centers and 8,000 online platforms, which include websites and official accounts of social media platforms such as Weibo and WeChat, which cover over 220 million followers from across the country.

In the meanwhile a sound momentum has been built in the growth of websites, social media accounts and other online portals managed by women's federations at all levels.

For instance, the total number of relevant WeChat accounts has gone up by nearly 20 percent since the end of 2016.

For their part, trainees said they would make a closer observance of President Xi's thoughts regarding the building of a powerful nation in cyberspace and his keynote speech at the national conference on the work of cybersecurity and information digitization.

Moreover, trainees pledged that they would stick to personal positions, play a positive role in spreading positive information, safeguarding internet safety, and contribute their efforts to the building of a powerful nation in cyberspace.

Those present at the opening ceremony included Wang Wenjuan, president of Zhejiang Women's Federation; Sun Xianlong, vice-secretary of the CPC Jiaxing Municipal Committee; officials from women's federations and representatives from their subordinate magazines and websites.
