Meng Xiaosi, vice president and member of the Secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), hosted a banquet for a delegation consisting of female representatives from all walks of life in Taiwanese society on February 19, at the China Women Activity Center in Beijing.

Meng said the delegation was the first group of guests she had received since Spring Festival. She added that we are a family and gave them a warm welcome.

During the banquet, Tsai Ling-lan, member of the Kuomintang Central Assessment Committee and who led the delegation, introduced the representatives to Meng.

Meng also briefed on the recent work of the ACWF, focusing on the implementation of several projects including Free Cancer Screening Program, Small Loan, Action Against Infant Anemia and more.

Huang Chao-shun, also a member of the Kuomintang Central Assessment Committee, introduced the development and achievement of several projects improving women's life in Taiwan, with a focus on women's entrepreneurship, the social security of older women, women's political participation and the prevention and treatment of cervical cancer and breast cancer.

The ACWF and the delegation exchanged gifts at the end of the banquet and took group photos. They promised to make exchange visits, learn from each other and promote women's development.

On the morning, the delegation also visited the Dongcheng District Women's Federation of Beijing. They had an informal discussion and visited Shijia Hutong Museum – Beijing's first museum themed around one specific hutong, located at Courtyard No 24 of Shijia Hutong, Dongcheng district.
