Shen encouraged the participants to thoroughly study the spirit of the important speeches delivered by General Secretary Xi Jinping during the series of activities to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China (PRC) and to understand that the CPC leadership is the essential feature and the greatest advantage of socialism with Chinese characteristics.

" 'One Country, Two Systems' has been proven the best solution in dealing with the affairs in the Hong Kong and Macao SARs, and also the most workable and effective policy to maintain Hong Kong and Macao's long-term prosperity and stability," said Shen.

She called on the delegates from Hong Kong and Macao SARs to further enhance their sense of mission and responsibility, and to transform their deep patriotism into actions for the development of the SARs and the nation.

Shen fully recognized women's role in maintaining the prosperity and stability of the Hong Kong and Macao SARs. She stressed that members of the executive committee of the women's federations from Hong Kong and Macao SARs should comprehensively and accurately carry out the "One Country, Two Systems" policy and fully support the SARs governments and the chief executives in administering according to law. She urged them to unite and lead women in the construction and development under the Belt and Road Initiative and in the Greater Bay Area. She also called on them to connect ordinary women and families in grassroots communities to give full play to women's role and advantages in family education, to cultivate and guide the juveniles to enhance the national consciousness and the spirit of patriotism, which would enable women to contribute to the prosperity and stability of the Hong Kong and Macao SARs.

She called on the delegates to unite women in the Hong Kong and Macao SARs to shoulder the historic responsibility of national rejuvenation and share the glory of the prosperity of the motherland.

Josephine Pang Tsui Mei-wan, President of the ACWF Hong Kong Delegates Association, Pansy Ho Chiu-king, Chairperson of the Hong Kong Federation of Women, and Ho Teng Iat, President of the Women's General Association of Macau, spoke at the meeting.

They said they would support the Hong Kong and Macao SAR governments, safeguard the "One Country, Two Systems" policy, lead women and young people to integrate into the development of the Greater Bay Area, and further exert women's unique role in social and family development.

The delegation visited the achievement exhibition on the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, inspected the women's innovation and entrepreneurship projects in Beijing and North China's Hebei Province, and conducted field visits in Xibaipo and Xiong'an, in Hebei Province.
