Policies for Promoting Employment of University Graduates in the People's Republic of China
There has been a huge expansion in higher education in the People's Republic of China (PRC) since the late 1990s. To help the country promote the employment of its college graduates, a group of education experts evaluated PRC's higher education policies through an ADB policy and advisory technical assistance (PATA) in 2014. The evaluation showed that labor demand in the PRC is decreasing, many graduates are finding it harder to get jobs, and those with post-graduate degrees have better chances of landing a job than those with four-year college diplomas. This presentation shares the PATA's recommendations to address these issues.
