World Today

Chinese President Xi Jinping has announced a $10 million donation to the U.N. agency promoting women’s rights to implement the 1995 blueprint adopted by world leaders to achieve gender equality — which remains a new U.N. goal for 2030.

Xi, who is co-chairing a meeting to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the U.N. women’s conference in Beijing that adopted the blueprint, also announced that in the next five years China will help developing countries establish 100 “health projects” for women and children.

He said China will also finance 100 projects to send poor girls to school, train 30,000 women from developing countries in China, and provide training opportunities for 100,000 women in other developing countries.
