Web accessibility standards in China

Is anyone familiar with Web Accessibility Standards in China? Is there a central set of standards that China has agreed to? Is there any agreement or effort to adhere to the W3C guidelines?

I'm doing some research on web accesibility standards globally, and would appreciate any information you could share. Thanks in advance for your help and time.

Hello all,

I am desperately looking for information about the HCI (UE/IXD) field in Chengdu, China in terms of opportunities, companies to check, or people to connect with. I know this looks like a long shot, but any information you have would be really appreciated!

Many thanks in advance :)
