Mr Zafar Uddin Mahmood, founder of UCF, highlighted that since the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the social and family status of Chinese women has been greatly improved. “In particular, with the success of China’s fight against poverty, the status of a vast number of women located in rural and remote mountainous areas has been significantly improved, and women play a great role in all fields of society.”

Professor Malik, a Pakistani social activist living in Germany, lauded the positive efforts of Chinese women and added that "in the new historical period, the women's circles of China and Pakistan should strengthen communication and exchanges, carry out the exchange of visits, and promote Pakistani women's social and family status."

Under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, generation after generation of Chinese women have embarked on a path of women’s liberation and development with distinctive Chinese characteristics, which has provided a Chinese plan for the liberation and development of women in the world, Mr Cai Jinbao, Chinese director of CIPU stated.

According to Mr Luo Jianxue, President of LOCA, this year's International Women's Day event aims to honor outstanding women who worked in Punjab in 2020-21. It is believed that in 2022, while overseas Chinese women strive to develop their careers, they will actively lead more sisters to continue to carry forward Chinese traditional virtues and make greater contributions to promoting exchanges between China and Pakistan in various fields.

Ms. Ayesha, a Pakistani entrepreneur suggested that a platform for communication and interaction can be established between Chinese and Pakistani women. Ms Bushra Iqbal-Malik, a human rights and women’s rights activist, expressed similar views, and also expressed their willingness to communicate with Chinese women face-to-face to help Chinese women and friends understand Pakistani culture and integrate into local life.
