Beijing Gets Final Touches Before Women's Conference

August 28, 1995| Associated Press

BEIJING — After five months of controversy over logistics, delegates have begun arriving in Beijing for a forum of private advocacy groups that hope to influence the work of the U.N. women's conference Sept. 4-15.

Some of the world's leading women politicians plan to attend the conference, including First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.

About 3,000 delegates taking part in the NGO forum for non-governmental organizations, to be held in the suburb of Huairou, have arrived in Beijing, and 18,000 more are expected today.

Chinese youths in pink T-shirts and blue pants have been stationed at the airport as greeters. In Beijing, buildings have been draped with red banners and flower arrangements have been placed along the streets.
