Shen Yueyue, Vice-Chairperson of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress and President of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), met a Fijian women's delegation in Beijing on December 5, 2017. Mereseini Vuniwaqa, Fiji's Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, headed the delegation.

During their meeting, Shen outlined the significance of, and important achievements made during, the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) which was held in Beijing in October 2017. She spoke highly of the bilateral relationship and women's friendly communication between China and Fiji. She said China would make efforts with Fiji to put into practice the consensus reached by leaders of the two countries, deepen bilateral communication and cooperation in all fields and advance the China-Fiji strategic partnership.

Shen also outlined the development of Chinese women's undertakings, under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee, with General Secretary Xi Jinping as its core, since the 18th CPC National Congress was held in 2012. She hoped Chinese and Fijian women would strengthen communication and continue making efforts to deepen the friendship between people of the two countries and make new progress in gender equality and in building a "Community of Shared Destiny."

Vuniwaqa expressed gratitude for the cordial meeting with Shen. She congratulated CPC on the achievements reached during the Party's 19th National Congress. She said she would continue dedicating herself to developing the Sino-Fijian friendship, and to deepening women's communication and cooperation.

The Fijian delegation visited China at the invitation of the ACWF. Yang Liu, Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, attended Shen's meeting with the delegation.

On the following day (December 6), Song Xiuyan, Deputy Director of the National Working Committee on Children and Women (NWCCW) and Vice-President and First Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, met Vuniwaqa in Beijing. Song introduced the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress and the Party and Chinese Government's measures to advance women's development. She also outlined the major work of the NWCCW and the ACWF.

Song spoke highly of the relations and women's communication between China and Fiji. She hoped women of both countries would strengthen exchanges and promote pragmatic cooperation to a new level in the "new era." Vuniwaqa thanked Song for her meeting, and she praised the women's federation for its work. She said she would bring China's good practices to her home country.
