Huang Xiaowei, Vice-President and First Member of the Secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), met Maya Morsi, President of the National Council for Women of Egypt, in Beijing on November 20, 2018.
Huang noted Chinese and Egyptians share a deep friendship and, under the leadership of Chinese President Xi Jinping and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, Chinese-Egyptian relations have advanced to a new level in history. Huang said women of the two countries should further implement the consensus reached by heads of the states by promoting sustainable development of China-Egypt and China-Africa cooperative forums, and women of the two countries should make greater contributions to building a closer community of shared destiny.
Huang added that the four-point proposal on promoting gender equality and women's all-round development globally, made by Chinese President Xi Jinping during the Global Leaders' Meeting on Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment, would be an important guide for women's organizations in China and Egypt as they conduct communications and cooperation. The ACWF regards the National Council for Women of Egypt as an important partner, with whom ACWF is willing to deepen cooperation, promote the comprehensive strategic partnership and advance gender equality undertakings worldwide.
Huang talked about the Communist Party of China and the Chinese Government's measures to advance women's all-round development, and she discussed the 12th National Women's Congress of China.
