China will create 300,000 additional jobs for the disabled in cities and towns by 2010, said the National Human Rights Action Plan of China (2009-2010) released Monday by the Information Office of the State Council (Cabinet).

The plan said the state will guarantee the disabled people's right to employment. The government will strengthen employment training for the disabled and the construction of an employment service network, standardize and develop business that offer jobs to a considerable number of disabled people at one go.

The government will promote compulsory hiring of disabled people in accordance with their proportion to the population at large, it said. The protective employment system for the disabled will be improved, which includes tax deduction and exemption, and the special production and marketing of certain products by the disabled.

Measures such as creating welfare work posts and providing social security subsidies will be implemented to ensure that by the year 2010 there will be 300,000 additional jobs for the disabled in cities and towns, it said.

The state will enhance support for poverty-stricken disabled people in rural areas, said the plan. Help will be provided to enable the 4 million disabled rural people who want for food and clothing to have adequate food and clothing, to enable the 400,000 disabled rural people with financial difficulties in the central and western regions to receive training in practical skills, and to enable 128,000 rural disabled people to rebuild their dilapidated houses.

There are more than 83 million people with various kinds of disabilities in China, accounting for 6.34 percent of the total population, according to the plan.
