BEIJING, Sept. 10 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese government Friday issued a white paper on its human resources, highlighting the country's policies to cope with employment pressures and a lack of "high-level innovative talents."
The white paper, released by the State Council Information Office, introduced the country's human resources situation, related laws and regulations and protection of workers' rights and interests.
The 41-page paper, the first of its kind in China, says China's 1.3 billion population is "a vast reservoir of human resources," and "actively developing human resources, bringing into full play the potential ability and value of each individual and promoting the people's all-round development" is a significant aim.
China has a labor force of more than 1 billion people, 112 million more than in 2000, and the number of employees reached almost 780 million, more than 45 percent of whom were women, it says.
