 Li Keqiang: Dont let the unemployment tide happen and ensure that there are no zero-employment families.


Hello, Premier. Since last year, some enterprises have laid off staff, and some domestic and foreign-funded enterprises have begun to transfer overseas. At the same time, some enterprises have reported that it is difficult for them to recruit suitable skilled workers. So what policy measures will you take to solve these problems, Prime Minister? Thank you.

Li Keqiang:

We say that to keep the economy running in a reasonable range, first of all, we need to get jobs. We must not allow the economy to slip out of a reasonable period, that is, we must not let the unemployment tide occur. We should take more measures at the same time, and continue to guarantee the employment of some key groups of people, such as university graduates, demobilized servicemen and transferred workers. This year, the number of college graduates reached 8.34 million, more than last year, a record high. We should also ensure that there are no zero-employment families and give preferential policy support to those enterprises that have more labor. We also need to promote innovation and entrepreneurship, and make good use of mass entrepreneurship and innovation platform to provide more jobs. Whether employment is good or not is also an important manifestation of the good economy itself.
