At the invitation of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), 14 participants from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico and Venezuela visited China from November 1-11, 2016. The participants attended a seminar on women's participation in development and innovative economy.

Zhang Xiaolan, Vice-President and Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, attended the opening ceremony and delivered a speech. Zhang spoke of the friendship between China and Latin American countries, and of women's communications and cooperation. She said the seminar aimed at enabling women to share their experiences in employment and entrepreneurship, and to deepen their understanding about women's participation in economic development in China and Latin America. ACWF, she added, will enhance dialogue and cooperation with women in Latin America, strengthen Sino-Latin American friendship and fulfill the goals set during the Global Leaders' Meeting on Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment.

During the seminar, representatives of the Latin American countries learned about China's economic, social and women's development, and about Chinese women's organizations' roles in enhancing women's development and their participation in innovative economy. They attended a Chinese entrepreneurs' forum, visited a women entrepreneurs' business incubator in Beijing and a rural women's crafts-making project in Southwest China's Guizhou Province. They congratulated Chinese people on the economic and social development they had achieved, and they said they hoped to bring China's good practices to their home countries, to enhance women's development and participation in innovative economy.
