Policies for Promoting Employment of University Graduates in the People's Republic of China (PRC)

14 June 2016
People’s Republic of China

A group of experts on higher education from Peking University's Graduate School of Education and international experts from Hong Kong University and Canada evaluated policies that promote graduate employment in the People's Republic of China (PRC) in 2014. Their evaluation focused on expanding self-employment opportunities, strengthening employment assistance and support schemes for the disadvantaged and women, and encouraging graduates to seek employment in local urban and rural areas, as well as in lagging central and western regions. This initiative was part of an ADB technical assistance package that looks at how tertiary education institutions can better facilitate graduate employment.
