Officials from 28 countries gather in Beijing for strategic talks on child rights

Senior government ministers and officials from 28 countries across Asia and the Pacific gathered in Beijing today for the High Level Meeting on Co-operation for Child Rights in the Asia-Pacific Region. The meeting, held from 4-6 November, is being hosted by the All China Women’s Federation, the National Working Committee for Children and Women under the State Council, the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China with support from UNICEF. Senior delegates from a number of Chinese government ministries as well as regional representatives from UNICEF also attended.
Together, the participating countries represent one billion children, or 53 % of the world’s total child population.
Economic progress in many Asia-Pacific countries has been remarkable, with hundreds of millions of people emerging from dollar-a-day poverty over the past few decades. Yet, at the same time, economic and social inequalities have been increasing, affecting the lives of millions of children. To help address these disparities, officials from across the region will have in-depth discussions on the promotion of children's rights to health, education and protection.
