Huang, vice chairperson of the National Working Committee on Children and Women under the State Council and first member of the secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation, shared China's achievements and experience in coordinating epidemic control and economic and social development.
While the issues that generate tension between China and the United States are multiple and complex, the issues that unite them are weightier enough to save bilateral ties, he said.
He said although China had been hit hard by the pandemic, her efforts in stabilizing industrial and supply chains in the region shall be praised.
The rise in cases has been blamed on the easing of lockdown regulations by authorities and non-compliance of prevention measures. The epidemic has flared up in some communities.
Huang introduced China's efforts in protecting the lives and health of women and children amid the epidemic and the roles Chinese women and women's federations have played in COVID-19 response and recovery.
UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka called for more attention to women's contributions to COVID-19 response and recovery, as well as better global cooperation to build a more inclusive and equal world.
"Countries are already working together to solve the world's problems, but it is normal for there to be different tensions and interests," he said. Enditem
Some American politicians who are biased against and hostile to China are using their power to smear China with fabrications and impede normal ties with China under various pretexts, Wang told Xinhua in an exclusive interview.
"After all, what would happen to business confidence if governments assumed that they could extort private enterprises at will?" Wei added.
