China plans to im­prove the salaries and so­cial sta­tus of skilled work­ers as in­creas­ing de­mand has re­sulted in a hu­man re­sources short­age. The cen­tral gov­ern­ment has in­vested more than 2 bil­lion yuan ($311.8 mil­lion; 254 mil­lion eu­ros; £223 mil­lion) to en­hance the coun­try’s capability for train­ing skilled tal­ent, and im­prove­ments have been made in their work. Cur­rently, there are 476 State-level train­ing bases for highly skilled tal­ent and 594 spe­cially es­tab­lished work­shops for masters who can train ap­pren­tices. The num­ber of highly skilled peo­ple in the coun­try reached more than 47.9 mil­lion by the end of 2016, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment from the Pro­fes­sional Ca­pac­ity Build­ing De­part­ment of the Min­istry of Hu­man Re­sources and So­cial Se­cu­rity.
