Song Xiuyan, vice-president and first member of the Secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), held an inspection tour with an emphasis upon poverty relief in Nanning, capital city of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, on November 1.

Song firstly visited the Memorial Hall of Deng Yingchao (1904-1992), who was the wife of former Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai (1898-1976) and one of the pioneers of the Chinese women's movement in the early 20th Century. She looked through exhibited photos, books, manuscripts and other items of Deng, and listened to an introduction of her contributions to the success of the Chinese revolution, the promotion of economic and social growth, and the advancement of women's affairs.

After that, Song toured Guangxi Museum of Nationalities, where a handicraft training center for impoverished women is located, and talked with local workers about the center's development and its efforts to help target women become prosperous.

She gave credit to the center for its innovative initiatives to integrate work on poverty alleviation amongst women and the cultivation of suitable industries into the normal work of women's federations. She also instructed Nanning Women's Federation to work closely with leading enterprises to help poverty-stricken women increase their income and raise their social status, and to mobilize all social forces to engage in poverty relief amongst underprivileged women.

Those in attendance of Song's tour in Nanning included Feng Xuejun, vice-secretary of Nanning Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC); Wu Xiaoli and Tian Wei, vice-presidents of Guangxi Women's Federation; Chen Yao, president of Nanning Women's Federation.
