Two delegates to the upcoming 12th National Women's Congress of China on October 21 made an inspection tour of Ma'anshan, a city in east China's Anhui Province, to collect women's suggestions on how to improve women- and children-related work. The delegates would take their ideas to Beijing.

Wang Bin, President of Ma'anshan Women's Federation (MWF), and Wang Zilian, a caring village official from Hanshan County in the city, on October 21 hosted a symposium, during which they listened to the suggestions of women representatives, from different sections of society, on how to improve the work of women's federations, at all levels in Ma'anshan.

Wang Bin and Wang Zilian, who are both delegates to the 12th National Women's Congress (NWC), encouraged the representatives to lead women in making greater contributions to promoting the modern construction of the city in the new era.

This year, MWF has established women's organizations in more than 70 non-public and social organizations. The federation has also encouraged the women's organizations to participate in the She Public Welfare Projects (including women- and children-oriented charitable projects).

The delegates conducted investigations at more than 10 sites, to learn about the development of the non-public and social organizations, promote the spirit of women's federations' reforms among heads of the project teams, and to take advice from them on how to promote the reforms.

The delegates also visited farms, farming and breeding cooperatives and women's start-up incubators, to learn about information about women's start-up enterprises and the achievements in poverty alleviation.

In addition, the delegates popularized information about the national poverty-alleviation policies among women, and encouraged the women to start their own businesses to help them escape poverty.

Great achievements have been made in the reforms of the grassroots women's federations, and women have made tremendous contributions to the promotion of the national economic and social development, said the delegates.

Based on local women's needs and wishes, the delegates will offer suggestions to ACWF on how to improve women and children-related work during the 12th NWC.
