A delegation of 13 officials from the National Working Committee on Children and Women under the State Council and its member departments concluded a four-day inspection tour of the implementation of National Programs for Women's and Children's Development (2011-2020) in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on April 29.

The team was headed by Vice-Director of China's State Ethnic Affairs Commission and Member of the National Working Committee on Children and Women Chen Gaihu, and aims to observe progress made by the southern autonomous region in the two programs' implementation.

According to Vice-Secretary of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Regional Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and Director of Guangxi Working Committee on Children and Women Huang Shiyong, Guangxi met 39 of the 58 targets set in the National Program for Women's Development (2011-2020) and 61 of 85 goals set in the Guangxi Program for Women's Development (2011-2020) by the end of 2015. He added that the region had achieved 29 of 34 goals set in the National Program for Children's Development (2011-2020) and 42 of 49 goals set in the Guangxi Program for Children's Development (2011-2020).

Thanks to consistent efforts from local health departments, educational bodies and other relevant governmental branches in recent several years, the percentage of local people who received pre-marital health check-ups rose from 68.49% in 2010 to 98.12% in 2015, and the ratio of children who entered into kindergartens saw an increase from 54% in 2010 to 74.7% in 2015. Meanwhile, a total of 607 centers have been established across the region to better protect the rights and interests of underprivileged women and children.

The inspection team toured health institutes, educational organizations, charity entities, enterprises and communities or villages around Hechi and Liuzhou. They also attended a gathering in the capital, Nanning, on April 26.

Members of the inspection team agreed that remarkable progress had been achieved by local governments in the two programs' implementation and the promotion of women's and children's affairs in all aspects, yet emphasized that as an economically underdeveloped region, Guangxi still lagged far behind in the construction of educational and health facilities as well as the cultivation of professionals in far-off or mountainous areas.

The region is expected to introduce more policies and regulations to help local women secure their rights and interests, further efforts to help women receive regular medical check-ups, build more activity centers for women and children, increase the level of women's political participation, and strengthen the work of local working offices on children and women, Chen said at the gathering in Nanning.

The delegation urged local governmental bodies to continue work in the two programs and focus on moving forward.
