China now has an estimated 85 million people with disabilities, a number comparable to the population of Germany, according to Tim de Meyer, director of the International Labor Organization country office for China and Mongolia, setting a tough goal for China to achieve the sustainable development for this group of people.
To promote the participation of people with disabilities in the sustainable development process, the China Disability and Sustainable Development Forum was held in Beijing on Friday. More than 100 policy makers and experts attended the forum.
