Since the start of the year, Southwest China's Guizhou province has reportedly implemented the employment priority policy, made every effort to stabilize employment, and promoted the jobs for key groups such as college and university graduates, rural laborers and veterans.
Currently, the employment situation in the province is said to be generally stable.
In the first three quarters of the year, 586,700 new jobs were created in the urban areas of the province, an increase of 194,300 over the first half of the year, completing 97.8 percent of the annual target.
It is understood that all nine cities and prefectures and 88 counties have completed their task of creating new positions in urban areas during the nine months.
