BEIJING, Sept.21,2020 -- China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region has continuously bolstered public employment services, according to a white paper released Thursday by the State Council Information Office.
The local government has built a well-defined, dynamic, five-tiered public employment service system for employers and employees, which is well-coordinated at all levels and covers every part of Xinjiang, says the white paper titled "Employment and Labor Rights in Xinjiang."
The government has also expanded its services in areas such as policy advice, employment and unemployment registration, career guidance and recommendation, and skills and business startup training, according to the document.
By the end of 2019, there were 144 human resource markets at the county level or above, 149 job placement agencies on the farms of the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps, and 8,668 primary-level labor offices across Xinjiang, providing employment services to around 21.73 million people that year.
