Shen Yueyue, Vice-Chairperson of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress of China and President of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), met Tomomi Inada, First Deputy Secretary-General of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) of Japan, in Beijing, on April 25, 2019. Shen welcomed Inada, who came to China to attend the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation. During the meeting, Shen said China and Japan are important neighbors and China-Japan relations have been back on normal track and gaining positive momentum at the current stage.

Shen said Chinese President Xi Jinping, in his meeting with Toshihiro Nikai, Special Envoy of Japan's Prime Minister and Secretary-General of LDP, on April 24, pointed out that China and Japan should abide by the principles affirmed in the four China-Japan political documents, adhere to the general direction of peace and friendship, continue to deepen mutually beneficial cooperation and promote the healthy and stable development of bilateral relations. She expressed that China is willing to make efforts with Japan to implement the consensus reached by the heads of the two countries, deepen practical communications and cooperation, and advance the development of China-Japan relations.

Shen said women in China and Japan are an important force in pushing forward healthy development of China-Japan relations. She emphasized the importance of seizing the opportunity of building the Belt and Road, to create a new platform, a new path and new highlights for enhancing women's cooperation and people-to-people connectivity. She reviewed a series of policies and measures implemented by the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Chinese Government to advance women's development and protect women's rights and interests since the founding of the People's Republic of China, and especially since the 18th CPC National Congress. She also outlined the great changes that have taken place in Chinese women's employment, education and health care.

Shen expressed her hope that friendly exchanges and cooperation between women and women's organizations of the two countries will be enhanced, and that mutual learning and sharing on issues related to women's employment, educational and medical care and nursing services will be deepened. 2019 is the Year for the Promotion of Youngsters' Exchanges between China and Japan. Shen hoped that more young women in the two countries will participate in this initiative, and play their roles as "builders and inheritors" of China-Japan friendship.

Inada spoke positively of the Belt and Road Initiative's significance for enhancing international cooperation and building relations between Japan and China. She praised the great progress reached in women's development during the seven decades since the founding of the People's Republic of China. She said she will continue promoting friendly exchanges between women of the two countries.

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