Sporting exchanges highlighted at Spring Festival celebration

The China Disabled Persons' Federation (CDPF) hosted an event to celebrate the upcoming Spring Festival in Beijing on Jan. 30, attended by over 100 representatives from embassies in China, U.N. agencies, international organizations and businesses, and called for more exchanges through the para-athlete story sharing event, interactive para-sport activities and artistic performance. 

Zhou Changkui, president of the CDPF Executive Board, said at the event that China has always insisted on integrating China's disability cause development with that of the world and endeavors to build a global community with shared future. He expressed the federation's hope to cooperate with U.N. agencies and embassies in China, as well as businesses and social organizations, to construct a platform for exchanges and mutual learning to improve the lives of people with disabilities around the world.

Sports play an important role in creating a bridge for communication among countries.

Representatives at the event participated in various para-sports such as boccia, curling, blind football and wheelchair basketball, and listened to inspiring stories from athletes with disabilities.
