Ambassador Yu introduced the Chinese economic and social development, the government support for women's cause in China and the development of China-Nepal relations.

Since its establishment, the Society had been committed to providing a platform for the Nepal-China women exchanges, sharing successful experiences and encouraging the common progress of women between the two countries. The Society would like to continue to strengthen exchanges and cooperation with the Chinese Embassy and promote the continuous development of women's friendship between the two countries.
