Mea­sures to im­prove house­hold ser­vices

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - POLICY REVIEW -

The Na­tional Devel­op­ment and Re­form Com­mis­sion has re­leased a guide­line on im­prov­ing house­hold ser­vices for 2017 to­gether with the Min­istry of Hu­man Re­sources and So­cial Se­cu­rity, the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion, the Min­istry of Com­merce, as well as the Min­istry of In­for­ma­tion and In­dus­trial Tech­nol­ogy. The guide­line makes clear a 20 per­cent in­crease in busi­ness rev­enue, and house­hold ser­vice in­dus­tries are ex­pected to play a big­ger role in ab­sorb­ing the la­bor force from ru­ral ar­eas, ur­ban laid-off work­ers, wom- en in cen­tral and western China, as well as the la­bor force in their 40s or 50s. About 28 mil­lion peo­ple will be work­ing in the house­hold ser­vice in­dus­try, the guide­line says, lay­ing a solid ground for the in­dus­try’s longterm devel­op­ment.
