The Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, along with the Chinese Association in Switzerland, recently held a women's forum in Chengdu, southwest China's Sichuan Province, on the theme of "Global Cooperation: Sharing Inspiration for Innovation and Entrepreneurship".
The 2nd Sino-Swiss Women's Forum was held to deepen bilateral relations and encourage further cooperation between women in the fields of commerce, culture, education and tourism.
Wang Shuixia, president of Beijing Women's International Communication Association (BWICA), gave a keynote speech at the gathering.
Wang shared her experiences as a female entrepreneur and cultural worker and reviewed the development and innovation of BWICA since its foundation.
Wang briefed the event titled Civilized Dialogue Forum, which was held with two sessions in a row. She said that the forum focusing on the international stage was China's first cultural exchange platform of its type, sponsored by a nongovernmental organization and guided by the government.
Through such explorations and innovation, Wang hoped to fully mobilize various people to play on their strengths, give full play of women's advantages, and carry forward outstanding culture as the core content.
Wang added that she was optimistic that attendees could carry out exchange on cultural and business-related activities across the globe and promote cultural innovation and mutual understanding between the two countries.
In addition, at the roundtable discussion, Chinese and Swiss women leaders further discussed the prospect and direction of their cooperation.
According to organizers, the forum focuses on women's development and highlighted their charm, aiming to provide a platform for enhancing communication, friendship, business opportunities and cultural exchange between women from the two countries.
