The conference opens in Auckland this Sunday (November 17) and is on until Tuesday November 19.
issues, women's status, women in politics, abuse and
prostitution are all topics that will be explored and
debated during the conference. This demonstrates that there
is much in common among women’s issues despite cultural and
language differences,” Pansy Wong said.
"Dialogues between our women and women in China will foster closer relationships and understanding beyond economic consideration.
"This inaugural conference should lead to future co-operation for joint research and imitative for the benefit and status of women in the two countries,” Pansy Wong said.
