China Women's Development Foundation (CWDF) worked with the China Women Tourism Committee under the China Tourism Association and Shenzhen Knowing Company to launch a tourism education fund on December 6 in Beijing.

At the launch ceremony, Shenzhen Knowing Investment Company donated 1 million yuan (U.S $161,600)to the fund. Vice President of CWDF Zhen Yan attended the launch ceremony and delivered the key-note speech. Zhen said that the tourism education fund puts the emphasis on improving the comprehensive capacity of women who engage in the tourism industry. CWDF made significant progress working with the enterprise and the industry association to take advantage of social resources and provide services to women, added Zhen.

Xiong Yumei, executive director of China Women Tourism Committee under the China Tourism Association, made remarks on the fund's working agenda. She noted that the fund will follow the central government's policies on promoting the tourism industry and organize more public events and raise more money to develop the fund and benefit more women.

This year the fund provided professional training to women in Liping and Congjiang counties in southwest China's Guizhou Province. Representatives of the women in these two counties also attended the launch ceremony. They said that the professional training not only gave them knowledge on tourist services but also greatly enhanced the tourism management of the local tourism industry.
