Returned workers to get business help
The National Development and Reform Commission has recently launched applications for pilot regions to support migrant workers who return to their hometowns for entrepreneurship, an effort in line with China’s modern urbanization. County-level regions with a comparatively large population of migrant workers, college graduates and veterans are encouraged to apply for piloting policies through recommendation of provincial level government. The government will also, to an extent, favor regions with comparatively heavy tasks in phasing out excess capacity and alleviating poverty. The document also stressed local governments need to fasten steps in nurturing a sound business environment for workers returning to hometowns for entrepreneurship, improving public services while widening financing channels.
