Guangdong province, an economic powerhouse in South China, will offer more jobs to Hong Kong and Macao residents in the years ahead. According to a senior official, the province is introducing an employment plan for young people from the two special administrative regions to work in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

"We will promote employment policies, optimizing a series of measures to hire Hong Kong and Macao residents in public institutions," Chen Min, Party chief of Guangdong's Department of Human Resources and Social Security, said at a news conference in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong, on Friday. 

According to Chen, in 2021, the province provided more than 9,000 jobs in public institutions to graduates from Hong Kong and Macao. "We will organize designated job fairs for Hong Kong and Macao young people who are willing to work in public institutions in Guangdong," Chen said. Hong Kong and Macao youths will be encouraged to start their business in Guangzhou and Shenzhen, which neighbors Hong Kong.

By the end of 2021, some 195,400 Hong Kong and Macao residents had entered Guangdong's social security system. "We will explore and establish a cross-border cooperation mechanism for social security service, promoting integration of such services in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao," Chen further said.
