500,000 jobs to be created for disabled

By LI LEI


China's latest plan on promoting human rights has pledged to create 500,000 urban jobs for disabled people by 2025, an official said on Tuesday.


It was one of a range of targets related to disabled people's welfare set out in the Human Rights Action Plan of China (2021-25) released by the State Council Information Office on Thursday, said Li Xiaojun from the office's human rights affairs bureau.


The plan, the fourth of its kind since 2009, also pledged to offer occupational training for 2 million disabled people in rural and urban regions and roll out an employment counseling system.


Official figures showed China had 8.6 million workers registered with disabilities last year, up 0.76 percent year-on-year.


The other targets involve areas including welfare and social security, education, employment, accessible facilities and the availability of accessible aids and rehabilitation therapies, Li told a news conference in Beijing.
