Beijing (VNA) – President of the Vietnam Women’s Union (VWU) Nguyen Thi Thu Ha is leading a VWU delegation to visit China from December 18-22 to boost cooperation between women of the two countries and to learn about vocational training for women and women’s start-ups.

Ha’s visit is being made at the invitation of the All-China Women’s Federation (ACWF), during which she met with ACWF President Shen Yue Yue and held talks with ACWF Vice President Deng Li.

At the meetings, the two sides reviewed exchange activities between the VWU and ACWF over the past several years and shared experiences in ensuring women’s rights and promoting their role.

Earlier, Ha witnessed the signing of a cooperation agreement between four provinces of Vietnam, namely Cao Bang, Ha Giang, Quang Ninh and Lang Son, and the women’s federation of the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. The deal is expected to help build a shared border of peace, cooperation and development between the two nations.

In Shanghai, she learned about some successful start-up businesses run by Chinese women and how to create links between the women’s federations and local enterprises to carry out community activities.

Ha also visited vocational schools for women and safe cultural and educational centres for youths and community-based activities of the women’s federation in Guangxi.-VNA
