New jobs in cities and towns achieve the target of the whole year ahead of schedule
According to the 2019 Government work report, the main expected targets for economic and social development this year are: GDP growth of 6%-6.5%; More than 11 million new jobs were created in cities and towns, the surveyed unemployment rate in cities and towns was about 5.5 percent, and the registered unemployment rate in cities and towns was less than 4.5
According to data released by the National Bureau of Statistics on October 18, 10.97 million new jobs were created in cities and towns in the first three quarters of this year, accounting for 99.7 percent of the target for the whole year.
On 12 November, Li Keqiang revealed at a forum of experts and entrepreneurs on the economic situation that since the beginning of this year, under the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core, efforts have been made to overcome difficulties and rely on reform, opening up, and accurate regulation and control. The economic operation was maintained in a reasonable range, and the target of new urban employment was achieved ahead of schedule for the whole year.
This also means that up to now, more than 11 million new jobs have been created in cities and towns. The Nandu reporter noted that this is also the first time this year that officials have publicly announced that new jobs in cities and towns will meet the target for the whole year ahead of schedule.
Judging from the situation last year, the new employment in cities and towns in China has also achieved the target for the whole year ahead of schedule. On October 31, 2018, Lu Aihong, spokesman for the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, said at a news conference that from January to September of that year, a total of 11.07 million new jobs were created in cities and towns, accomplishing the full-year target one quarter ahead of schedule.
Li Keqiang said at the meeting that the rapid and steady growth of such a large economy in China on a high base is in itself an advance, and the achievements are not easy to come by. However, the current external environment is becoming more complex and grim, the downward pressure on the domestic economy is increasing, the prices of some products such as pork are rising rapidly, and the difficulties of enterprises are increasing. We must enhance our awareness of suffering and the spirit of practical work. We will ensure the completion of the main objectives and tasks for this year's economic and social development and lay a good foundation for further development.

Care about pig production and emphasize the need to stabilize prices
Price stabilization has always been a key issue of concern to the Prime Minister.
Consumer prices across the country rose 3.8% in October from a year earlier, up 0.9% from a month earlier, according to the National Bureau of Statistics. From the data, the rise in food, tobacco and alcohol prices is the main factor in the rise in CPI. In October, food, tobacco and alcohol prices rose 11.4 per cent from a year earlier, affecting CPI by about 3.37 percentage points.
At this forum of experts and entrepreneurs on the economic situation, Li Keqiang mentioned that it is necessary to take more measures to stabilize agricultural production and "curb the excessive rise in the prices of some products." We will ensure the basic livelihood of the people in need. "
Pork supply has also attracted much attention from the outside world. Since African classical swine fever, the State Council has repeatedly mentioned the need to ensure the supply of live pigs and stabilize meat prices.
Pork prices continued to rise, rising 20.1% from a month earlier, while pork prices rose 101.3% from a year earlier, according to October data. The price of fresh vegetables fell by 10.2%, and the price of fresh fruit changed from rising to falling by 0.3%.
In this regard, Li Keqiang stressed: speed up the resumption of pig production, abolish unreasonable restrictions on raising, and adopt multiple measures to ensure market supply at the same time.
It is necessary to strengthen support for the real economy, especially for small, micro and private enterprises.
According to the Chinese Government Network, at the forum, experts and enterprise leaders attending the forum reflected that this year's external risks and internal difficulties are many, but the state's policies on reducing taxes and fees, promoting employment, and optimizing the business environment have played an important role. The overall economic operation is stable, and there are many new bright spots in the field of new momentum and people's livelihood. We also put forward relevant policy recommendations.
Li Keqiang pointed out: it is necessary to maintain the stability of macro policies and make better use of the counter-cyclical adjustment tools of macro policies. We will improve fiscal, monetary, employment and regional policies, timely and appropriate regulation and control, and improve mechanisms for policy coordination, transmission and implementation, so as to enhance effectiveness and sustainability.
It is worth noting that Li Keqiang stressed the need to strengthen support for the real economy, especially for small, micro, and private enterprises, so as to boost market confidence. We will optimize the use of special debts by local governments, encourage social funds to invest more in areas such as making up for shortcomings and benefiting the people's livelihood, expand effective investment, and enhance the endogenous driving force for development. We will improve the policy system for giving priority to employment, continue to do a good job in supporting enterprises to stabilize posts and expand employment space, strengthen employment services for key groups, and maintain the overall employment situation.
On 22 October this year, China issued the first special administrative regulation, the regulations on optimizing the Business Environment, in order to further optimize the business environment. Li Keqiang said: it is necessary to persist in promoting reform and opening up and further stimulate market vitality and social creativity. In accordance with the requirements of the full implementation of the regulations on optimizing the Business Environment, we will make greater breakthroughs in the reform of "release, management, and clothing" and break the hidden threshold for enterprises to invest and start a business.
In addition, in promoting a high level of opening up to the outside world, it is necessary to support enterprises to seize the opportunity of the continuous introduction of China's opening up measures and the consensus reached in the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement, and actively participate in international competition and cooperation. We will strengthen scientific and technological innovation, continue to carry out mass entrepreneurship and innovation and Internet +, enhance the support of new momentum to the economy, speed up the upgrading of the manufacturing industry, and promote high-quality development.
Tap the market potential and develop livelihood services such as providing for the aged, nursery and nursery, etc.
The forum also focused on issues related to people's livelihood, especially supporting the development of livelihood services such as providing for the aged and nursery and child care.
Li Keqiang pointed out: it is necessary to improve mechanisms and policies, actively attract social forces to participate, focus on the needs of the masses, tap market potential, vigorously develop services such as providing for the aged, nursery and nursery, and promote the transformation of old residential areas.
It is understood that the old community pension facilities have been in arrears for a long time. At the end of May this year, the executive meeting of the State Council decided not only to step up efforts to support community family services such as old-age care and care in terms of preferential tax and fee policies, but also to make up for debts owed to old-age facilities in old residential areas through buyback and leasing.
It is worth noting that the forum not only invited Cai Fang, Liu Qiao, Lu Ting and other experts, but also invited Mei, Wen's food, Anxin pension and other enterprise representatives to speak. One of the Anxin pension, is a home suitable for aging transformation and old community transformation as the main business of the young enterprise.
"this year, I feel that the old-age industry has ushered in a stage of rapid development. In the current economic environment, vigorously promoting the aging transformation of homes and the transformation of old residential areas is not only a people's livelihood but also an investment, which can stimulate the economy." An Xin endowment founder and CEO E Junyu, who participated in the forum, told Nandu reporters.
At the forum, E Junyu focused on the current situation of the pension industry, and mentioned that the pension industry needs market-oriented operation, "can not say that the pension industry should be subsidized by the government", this view has been affirmed by the prime minister.
E Junyu also admitted to the Nandu reporter that the old-age industry, which needs market-oriented operation, still faces many difficulties, such as the late start of the industry and the low degree of market acceptance, which is particularly obvious in the field of aging transformation.
For example, the elderly are most afraid of falling, many falls occur at home, and most of the elderly in our country choose to provide for the aged at home. If the market can provide home aging transformation services, the risk of falling down for the elderly will be greatly reduced, but the problem is that the market and society do not have a sufficient understanding of this, but also restricts the development of this livelihood service.
"Children have filial piety, but many children do not quite understand what the elderly really need and how to help their parents. This requires vigorous publicity by the government and society, and it is a process of enlightenment." E Junyu said. (reporter Bu Yuqin, Hu Mingshan)
