Gov­ern­ment prom­ises sup­port for mi­grant work­ers

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

The Chi­nese gov­ern­ment has promised to sup­port mi­grant work­ers, col­lege grad­u­ates and army vet­er­ans who want to re­turn to their ru­ral home­towns to start busi­nesses.

The State Coun­cil, China’s cab­i­net, re­leased a guide­line say­ing the gov­ern­ment will of­fer tax breaks, cut ad­min­is­tra­tion fees, sub­si­dize busi­ness loans and op­ti­mize sup­port­ing poli­cies.

The gov­ern­ment promised to ease the busi­ness reg­is­tra­tion pro­ce­dure for these small busi­nesses and al­low them to en­ter ru­ral in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment and public ser­vices that are nor­mally op­er­ated by the gov­ern­ment.

The gov­ern­ment also pledged to in­vest more in ru­ral in­fra­struc­ture, es­pe­cially IT fa­cil­i­ties, and to pro­vide busi­ness train­ing for those who are in­ter­ested.

Mi­grant work­ers, col­lege grad­u­ates and re­tired sol­diers have bet­ter con­tacts with the out­side world than long-time farm­ers and may bring new busi­ness ideas and man­age­ment ex­pe­ri­ence to ru­ral ar­eas, the State Coun­cil said.
