Rules aim to clarify role of government, improve development of job agencies
July 18,2018--A regulation governing the human resource market will take effect in October to improve employment agency services, help maintain the rise in job opportunities and boost economic upgrading, senior officials said on Tuesday.
The regulation, signed by Premier Li Keqiang, is the first of its kind since reform and opening-up, said Zhang Yizhen, vice-minister of human resources and social security, at a policy briefing hosted by the State Council Information Office.
For the first time, the regulation aims to improve the development of China's human resource service sector by clearly defining the range of services, behavior norms, management requirements and the role of the government, while attracting the participation of the private sector, said Zhang.
"In drafting the regulation, we have widely solicited opinions online from the public and suggestions from ministries, local governments and industry associations," said Du Yaling, director of the department for social management legislation of the Ministry of Justice.
