It is often said that human resources are most in-demand in the 21st century. Just now, you talked a lot about the demand for talented people. There is an urgent need for human resources in Hainan as it develops itself into a free-trade port. What specific measures will Hainan introduce to attract competent personnel to participate in its free trade port development? Thank you.

Liu Cigui:

Thank you for your question. Hainan has been at the forefront of China's reform and opening up endeavor for more than three decades. Around 100,000 people once crossed the Qiongzhou Strait to start businesses in Hainan. However, Hainan, formerly an administrative region of Guangdong, became a province in 1988. Therefore, human resources are inadequate to meet the needs in its development.

As I introduced just now, we have launched an action plan of bringing 1 million talented people to settle in Hainan by 2025. The Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee and other government departments have offered strong support for Hainan in attracting competent personnel. In recent years, about 200 officials, who served in leadership teams of other places, have been selected and transferred to work in Hainan for two to three years in the leadership of governments and departments at provincial,municipal and county level. This represents an effort of central government departments to firmly implement the important speech by General Secretary Xi Jinping at the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the founding of Hainan province and the Hainan Special Economic Zone on April 13, 2018. General Secretary Xi said, deepening overall reform and opening-up in Hainan is a major national strategy, which requires rallying support from the entire country as well as global talented people. Here I would like to thank the various central government departments for their support to Hainan in this regard.

To implement General Secretary Xi's speech and our action plan for 2025, the CPC Hainan Provincial Committee established a working committee on human resources for which I act as the director. After regular studies, we have unveiled a series of measures on how to fully utilize talents and provide assistance with their housing and children's education. In the last two years, more than 100,000 people have come to Hainan to find jobs or start their own business. When 100,000 people crossed the Qiongzhou Strait to Hainan 30 years ago, people with PhDs had to work as shoe-shiners since there were no jobs for them. In contrast, all 100,000 people who've settled in Hainan today can secure employment. We've recently released 40,000 job vacancies for global recruitment, and more will be available by the end of this year. Hundreds of thousands of talented people are expected to apply for jobs.

To address the shortage of competent personnel, we need to make Hainan an attractive destination, where worries about life can be lifted and talent realized. Hainan boasts a good ecological environment , clean air, clean water, and delicious food. But most importantly, there need to be enough job opportunities. As I've explained, to attract talented people, we need to ensure there are jobs for them.
