Author  :       Source  :    Xinhua     2016-02-01

Rural workers will be given more support to better integrate into cities and find employment, according to a policy document released Wednesday.

The government will encourage rural workers to find jobs or establish their own businesses in nearby regions, said the document released by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council.

The migrant rural labor force will be stabilized and expanded and rural workers will be offered support to start businesses in their hometowns, according to the document.

County-level economies and rural service industries will be improved, while more training will be offered to rural workers.

Local funds should be established to support females working in the countryside, and they should have better access to small loans and training.

In addition, the document outlined that "hukou" (household registration) reforms, which will see 100 million rural workers secure urban residential status, must be expedited.

Basic public services should be expanded to cover all permanent residents in cities, it said, calling for education and housing benefits for migrant rural workers.

After they become registered urbanites, rural workers' land rights should be protected and support given to those who transfer their land rights, according to the document.
