 Guangzhou has relaxed its household registration policy by a large margin: people with bachelor degree or above can settle down at the age of 40

Talents play an increasingly prominent role in urban economic development and transformation and upgrading. After Wuhan, Xian, Chengdu and other strong second-tier cities issued new household registration policies to compete for talents, Guangzhou, a first-tier city, also relaxed the conditions for talents to settle down.

On the afternoon of January 11, the Guangzhou Development and Reform Commission, in conjunction with the Guangzhou Peoples Social Bureau, the Municipal Laizhou Personnel Bureau and the Municipal Public Security Bureau, issued a new round of household immigration policy system in Guangzhou.

At the press conference, the relevant person in charge introduced that the new round of household entry policy has several characteristics. First, the family planning policy will no longer be used as a precondition for household registration to move to Guangzhou. Secondly, the conditions for the introduction of talents into the household have been greatly adjusted. Among them, the age limit for introducing talents into households has been relaxed, and bachelors degree, masters degree and doctors degree have been adjusted from 35, 40 and 45 to 40, 45 and 50 respectively.

In terms of talentsresidence, it also separates the acceptance of college graduates from their residence, simplifies the process of entering the residence of College graduates, and directly goes to the public security department for the admission of University graduates. It has made a major reform in the way of applying for talents entry into the residence. In the new policy, qualified talents can be declared through public employment and personnel service institutions. It can also be declared by employing units and competent departments, and individuals can be chosen to declare directly to the household.

Peng Peng, a researcher of Guangzhou Academy of Social Sciences, made an analysis of the first finance and economics. As a first-tier city and the frontier of Chinas reform and opening up, Guangzhou used to have a great attraction for foreign talents. In recent years, with the rise of inland core cities and strong second-tier cities, Guangzhous leading momentum is not as much as before, and the attraction for talents is also significantly weakened. Under the circumstances that the strong second-tier cities have launched a battle for talents, if Guangzhou does not relax the conditions of settling down and attract talents to settle down, then the competitiveness of the city will also be affected.

Peng Peng said that with the rapid economic development in inland Wuhan, Chengdu, Xian and other places, the infrastructure and living standards of these cities have gradually caught up with those of the first-tier cities, and the housing prices are much lower than those of the first-tier cities, and many talents have chosen to stay in these places. Guangzhou used to worry about the problem of too fast population inflow, but now it has to worry about the lack of attractiveness.

Peng Peng said that this round of talent competition fully shows that the competitiveness of a city is closely related to the inflow of population, especially talent. Faced with the competition of strong second-tier cities, Guangzhou must adjust the conditions of settlements in time so as to maintain its advantages in the new round of urban competition.

As early as Guangzhou, Shenzhen, another first-tier city, had greatly liberalized the conditions for its settlement.

In August 2016, Shenzhen issued Several Opinions of the Shenzhen Peoples Government on Further Strengthening and Perfecting the Management of Population Services, Some Provisions on Household Registration in Shenzhen (hereinafter referred to as Household Registration Provisions) and Provisions on Residence Registration and Processing of Residence Certificates in Shenzhen. It continued to deepen the reform of the household registration system and improve the proportion

The new talent introduction policy in Shenzhen has relaxed the entry conditions of pure academic talents to colleges, technical talents to secondary vocational schools + intermediate titles, skilled talents to senior workers who are in urgent need of jobs, as long as they meet the conditions, they can apply for admission, without restrictions on the number of indicators, and do more good. In terms of relocation policy, the conditions for entry have also been moderately relaxed. The introduction of this policy is also known as the most relaxed settlement policy in history.

Peng Peng said that at present, the state is vigorously promoting 100 million non-registered residents to settle down in the city, opening up the conditions for settlements in a wide and deep way, which can focus on solving the problem of converting those who have already lived and worked in the local area into local registered permanent residence and obtaining the treatment of local citizens, which is also the embodiment of the implementation of the national policy of settlements. On the other hand, by liberalizing the household policy, speeding up the citizenization of the migrant population and keeping these migrants in the local area, it will increase the consumption demand for education, occupation and other aspects, and have greater room to stimulate the local economic development.

The launch of the new round of household migration policy will be conducive to promoting the coordinated development of population and economy, society, resources and environment in Guangzhou, promoting the mutual adaptation and promotion of population development and urban function upgrading and industrial transformation and upgrading, and realizing the moderate population size, structural optimization and quality upgrading of Guangzhou.

For example, in the new policy of settling down, by formulating the catalogue of professions for introducing technical and skilled talents, we will vigorously introduce the technical and skilled talents urgently needed by Guangzhous industrial development. At the same time, specific conditions should be clarified to open up channels for innovative entrepreneurs and talents urgently needed by industries.

Peng Peng said that the new settlement policy also meets the needs of Guangzhous industrial transformation, upgrading and development. In Guangzhous current economic development and industrial transformation and upgrading process, we still need to vigorously develop high-end manufacturing industry. For example, in recent years, a series of major projects have been set up in the suburbs of Guangzhou, which require a large number of highly skilled personnel.
