Huang Xiaowei, Vice-President and First Member of the Secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), met with a delegation of the Hong Kong Women Development Association (HKWDA) to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, in Beijing, on June 18, 2019. Ip Shun Hing, Member of the National Committee of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, Member of the Executive Committee of the ACWF and Chairperson of the HKWDA, headed the delegation, which was composed of 43 members.

Huang spoke highly of the HKWDA for upholding the principle of "One Country, Two Systems" and the Hong Kong Basic Law, serving the community residents, especially women and children, and playing their roles in key issues involving the development of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR).

"Security is the fundamental guarantee for Hong Kong's prosperity and stability, and the rule of law is the core value cherished by Hong Kong society," Huang said.

She hoped that the HKWDA would make more efforts to guide women from all walks of life to enhance their national consciousness and patriotism, carry forward the good tradition of respecting the rule of law, and perform their unique function in consolidating social harmony and stability.

Meanwhile, she called on women in the Hong Kong SAR to grasp the opportunity of the Belt and Road Initiative and the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and participate in economic and social development actively.

Huang also thanked the HKWDA for its donations to support the poverty-alleviation campaign in China's mainland, and she explained the ACWF's achievements in uniting women to welcome the 70th anniversary of the founding of the PRC, shaking off poverty, promoting rural revitalization and implementing the Happy Family and Well-Being Campaign.

Ip reported on the HKWDA's efforts in serving women and children and supporting the poverty-alleviation campaign in the mainland, adding that the HKWDA would further unite the patriotic forces and support the government of the Hong Kong SAR and its chief executive in exercising administrative power as mandated by law.

The HKWDA would also join more actively in the construction of the Greater Bay Area and further enhance exchange and cooperation with women's federations in the mainland, she added.

Several members of the delegation outlined the HKWDA's work involving the promotion of women's political participation, family construction and the inheritance of family virtues, and the association's efforts to support poverty-alleviation in the mainland. After the meeting, the HKWDA donated one million yuan (US $144,940) to the counties included in ACWF's poverty-alleviation list.

Xia Jie, Vice-President and Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, presided over the meeting.
