新疆针对失业青年实施“青年就业启航计划” (Xinjiang authorities implement “youth employment initiation project” for unemployed residents between 16-35 years old)
People’s Daily, May 27, 2019
HRIC Note: The project, proclaimed as an initiative to aid local unemployment, commences by building a data server to host information on unemployed persons aged 16-35. Project details include real-name registration, collection of data on family conditions, reasons for unemployment, career preferences, and skill levels. Authorities will also organize “tours of human resources markets and skilled-labour institutes” and arrange for subsidies and placement in “vocational training camps and employment training workshops.” These efforts are meant to encourage “trainee-style development.”
