SINGAPORE - Mandarin-speaking senior citizens now have an online Chinese portal to find out more about topics ranging from current affairs to lifestyle activities.

The Council for Third Age (C3A) launched a Chinese version of their one-stop web portal for seniors on Wednesday. A pilot version was launched last May.

It is designed with large font options and has a user-friendly layout for the elderly. The platform works with more than 120 partners to feature news, events, activities and promotions for seniors.

An English version has received 1.2 million page views and more than 200,000 unique visitors since it was launched in 2012.
