BEIJING - Chinese political advisors gathered Friday to brainstorm measures to boost the country's employment during a biweekly session in Beijing.
Held by the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the session was presided over by Wang Yang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the CPPCC National Committee.
Wang noted that employment is pivotal to people's wellbeing, and is the source of wealth and the cornerstone for social stability, calling for the coordination of the roles of the market and the government to enhance the accuracy, stability and concertedness of employment policies.
A total of twelve CPPCC members and enterprise representatives put forward suggestions on the industrial foundation, policy support, targeted groups and public service concerning employment at the session, while more than 400 political advisors shared their thoughts via the mobile platform of the top advisory body.
Speaking highly of the effective policies the country has carried out to boost employment over the years, some political advisors suggested that fiscal and monetary policies should be coordinated with employment policies, and that the financing channels of labor-intensive enterprises be expanded.
Some called for a better system of public service on employment and a unified information platform for employment.
Others called for efforts to adjust people's mindset when it comes to choosing jobs, so as to prompt more high-quality talent to take up jobs or start businesses in rural areas and at primary levels.
