As the journalist learned from the Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security (PDHS) on 15th July, in the past 5 years, the yearly rise of new employees has exceeded 1 million in the urban areas of the province, which is 10% of the total number of the whole country.

In recent years, we have taken the employment of college graduates and disadvantaged groups as a priority among priorities, and have been implementing active employment policies, innovating measures, and improving service, which has achieved striking effects. Each year we help about 100,000 disadvantaged people find jobs, and keep the initial employment rate for college graduates above 95%. A few days ago the Employment and Practice Platform for college graduates of Zhejiang Province went into operation, offering 200,000 valid practice positions daily free of charge.

According to authorities from the PDHS, the large-scale economic volume and rapidly developed service industry of our province have provided a huge number of jobs. What is worth mentioning is that, by encouraging entrepreneurship to stimulate employment, a large number of newly established companies and business persons have appeared, which has not only injected new energy into Zhejiang economy but also created many new jobs. In the future, we shall further optimize our business environment and stipulate entrepreneurship of the young people. Meanwhile, we will also promote skill training, develop public service jobs, and make the aid fund available for anyone who needs it.
