The question

With more and more university students graduating and looking for a job, what are you doing to ensure that unemployment levels stay low, and what steps are being taken to help the young generation get good jobs?


The answer

This year, we'll have 7.65 million college graduates, 160,000 more than last year, and a similar number of secondary vocational graduates, as well as middle and high school graduates who will not continue their schooling. These add up to 15 million young job seekers. The pressure is obviously heavy.

However, we still feel confident in maintaining a stable job market. One important reason is that China's economy continues to maintain sustained and sound development, and new drivers for economic growth are taking shape with structural adjustments, which will create a supportive environment for employment.

The government will adopt policies this year to promote the employment of college graduates.

First, macroeconomic and industrial policies will be coordinated to create more job opportunities.

Second, we will continue to provide college students with more career services.

Third, vocational training will be strengthened to help job seekers improve their professional skills.

Fourth, we will continue to promote entrepreneurship to expand employment.

And last but not least, we will continuously offer good public employment services-online services in particular-to better serve the target population.
