BEIJING - China is looking to improve its government websites to meet the demands of the disabled people, a circular issued jointly by China Disabled Persons' Federation (CDPF) and the Office of the Central Leading Group for Cyberspace Affairs said on Monday.

According to the circular, improvements of official websites will be completed by the end of 2020 allowing all disabled people in China to access the websites and online services.

The circular also featured a guideline for modification of the websites, which calls for better support technologies for public services and gradual improvement.

The goal is to make it more convenient for the disabled to receive government information and enjoy public services, according to an official at the CDPF.

The improvements will also help protect disabled people's right to employment and access to government feedback, contributing to better lives, the official added.

China has been furthering the status of disabled people over the past few years, with 40,486 disabled people in China admitted to universities during 2011 and 2015, thanks to government subsidies.
