Xia Jie, Vice-President and Member of the Secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), met with Prof. Ursula Mannle, president of Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSS) Mannleof Germany, in Beijing on May 24, 2019. Xia and Mannle both spoke of friendly exchanges between ACWF and HSS. They expressed the willingness to advance women's pragmatic cooperation, enhance women's economic empowerment, improve women's abilities and create a better international environment to help women develop as equally as men.

Xia outlined Chinese women's development and achievements under the leadership of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core. She also introduced ACWF's major projects.

Xia said during the past seven decades, the CPC and Chinese Government have attached great importance to the development of Chinese women and children's undertakings. In particular, since the 18th CPC National Congress, the CPC Central Committee, with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core, has included the promotion of gender equality and women's all-round development into the all-round development of the Party and the country. General Secretary Xi has stipulated the requirements to do well the work related to women and children's causes, and to promote women's all-round development. Xi has also emphasized the importance of ensuring women have equal access to legal rights, participate equally in economic and social development, and have equal opportunities to enjoy the fruitful results of China's reform and development, Xia added.

During her meeting with Mannle, Xia expressed gratitude for HSS' support for women in China's middle and western regions. Given the foundation's support, women in impoverished areas in West China have been provided with training to improve their professional skills. Rural women in Qinghai Province have increased their incomes by obtaining small loans. Women from Xihe County in Gansu Province have attended training to improve domestic-service skills.

Mannle said she hoped HSS will enhance communications and cooperation with ACWF. According to the foundation's survey and evaluation on participants' feedbacks about the third phase of domestic-service training in Xihe, 70 percent have found jobs in local areas or East China. She also exchanged ideas with Xia about women's employment and entrepreneurship.
