Shen Yueyue, President of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), met with Henrietta H. Fore, UNICEF Executive Director, in Beijing, on April 24.
After welcoming Fore, who came to attend the second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF), Shen said the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) proposed by President Xi Jinping has drawn many active responses and the participation of an increasing number of countries and international organizations in the past six years.
The BRF brings real benefits to people of the countries involved in the BRI, including their children and teenagers, as it promotes high-quality development of the Belt and Road and creates a better future, Shen noted.
She briefed Fore on China's achievements in optimizing the laws and regulations concerning children's development and protection, implementing national planning and improving the mechanism to boost their health and education with the Party and government's support under the principle of "children are the priority."
All the progress can be attributed to the strong leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and its insistence on the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, Shen remarked.
She also appreciated the cooperation between UNICEF and China, and she looked forward to further strengthening exchange and sharing of experience to benefit teenagers and children.
Shen said China was in a New Era with the goal of realizing people's happiness and the rejuvenation of the nation, and Chinese people were fulfilling the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core.
Fore thanked the ACWF for its fruitful cooperation with UNICEF, and she spoke highly of China's achievements in children's development.
She added that China's experience has set a good example for the world and UNICEF was willing to expand exchange and cooperation with the ACWF and help facilitate the development of Chinese youth.
Xia Jie, Vice-President and Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, also attended the meeting.
