China has always advocated and practiced the advancement of global women's development.
Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, has taken the lead in raising China's four-point proposal on promoting gender equality and women's all-round development worldwide. Huang noted, by working with all sectors to advance global women's development, the base will serve as a concrete measure in the implementation of the guiding principles of Xi's important speeches.

The ACWF will continue to deepen Chinese women's communications with women from other countries and make efforts to build the base into a platform that empowers and enhances women's development, and promotes their exchanges and cooperation. The federation will also make new and greater contributions to helping women walk to the frontline of the era, accelerating the fulfillment of gender equality, and building a community with a shared future for mankind, Huang added.
