Civil­ian per­son­nel rules re­vised to at­tract tal­ent

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - POLICY REVIEW -

The State Coun­cil has started to over­haul mea­sures aimed at pro­tect­ing the rights and in­ter­ests of mi­grant work­ers. The items un­der re­view in­clude em­ploy­ment, en­trepreneur­ship, la­bor rights, ur­ban pub-

A re­vised reg­u­la­tion on civil­ian per­son­nel in the mil­i­tary was re­leased on Fri­day as part of ef­forts to at­tract tal­ented work­ers to the armed forces.

The new rules, jointly is­sued by the State Coun­cil and the Cen­tral Mil­i­tary Com­mis­sion, de­fines civil­ian per­son­nel as those who work in man­age­ment or pro­fes­sional tech­ni­cal posts and are not ac­tive ser­vice­men or women.

Ac­cord­ing to the com­mis­sion’s Mil­i­tary and Civil­ian Per­son­nel Bu­reau, the re­vi­sion is aimed at ex­pand­ing the scope of civil­ian posts, op­ti­miz­ing the per­son­nel struc­ture, and sav­ing costs in hu­man re­sources. It is also ex­pected to help build a high-qual­ity and pro­fes­sional tal­ent pool for the mil­i­tary.

It is com­mon prac­tice for mod­ern armies to ac­tively re­cruit civil­ian per­son­nel, the bu­reau said, adding that China also needs to im­prove its civil­ian per­son­nel in­sti­tu­tions to op­ti­mize the struc­ture of its mil­i­tary force.
