China will provide more incentives to support the country's vocational training and make vocational education more attractive, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) said Friday.

The quota for national scholarships granted to outstanding students at vocational colleges will be increased from 50,000 to 60,000 starting this year, the MOF said in a joint statement with the Ministry of Education.

The level of financial assistance provided to those vocational school students in need will also be raised, according to the statement.

China will also set up a national scholarship for students at secondary vocational schools, the statement said.

Vocational education in China is playing an increasingly important role in expanding employment and promoting students' development.

China plans to expand student enrollment in vocational schools by 1 million this year, according to the government work report delivered to the annual national legislative session in March.
