China has embarked on active measures to minimize job cuts and has pledged to boost employment this year:

  • An early warning system is being set up to conduct monitoring of the job situation. The system is designed for regional labor and social security offices to collect employment information, such as the possible job cuts and the planned new recruits in the following week and the actual cuts.
  • Many cities are to encourage people to start businesses. Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces pledge to kick in favorable measures including free skill training for laid-off workers.
  • The Shanghai government also encouraged business start-ups to increase jobs. The city pledged to limit the registered unemployment rate to below 4.5 percent
