"We need to study and implement the Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era and the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), put the statements of Xi Jinping on children and children's affairs into practice and make greater efforts to plan and promote children's development," said Huang. 
 
Huang pointed out that it was crucial to give children the top priority. When promulgating laws, formulating policies, making plans and allocating resources, priority should be given to the interests and needs of children for their healthy growth, she added. 
 
"We should pay attention to solving the most prominent problems related to children's growth and development in the improvement of people's livelihoods. We should give full support to developing children's education, providing health services to children, ensuring their welfare and helping the poor, left-behind, migrant and disabled children.
 
Families, schools, the Party, government departments and all segments of society should take responsibility for the safety, health and growth of children," Huang said.
