A total of 5.64 million new jobs were created in China's urban areas in the first half of the year－63 percent of the annual target－as the country experiences a steady recovery in its job market amid containment of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Zhang Jinan, who leads the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, said on Saturday that the government will maintain policy support to boost recruitment demand, which has grown year-on-year since May.
The impact of the pandemic saw the country record just 390,000 new jobs in urban areas in February, but the number of new jobs added each month recently was around 1 million, he said.
Zhang said the surveyed unemployment rate in urban areas had also declined as recruitment demand rose.
The surveyed unemployment rate in urban areas hit 6.2 percent in February but dropped gradually in the second quarter and was 5.7 percent in June, he said.
The country reported 2 percent year-on-year growth in recruitment demand in May, marking the first month of positive growth since February. Demand continued to recover in June, Zhang said.
He said "the gradual recovery of employment in China beat expectations and was a hard-earned result" thanks to a series of measures the government had rolled out, such as cutting social insurance contributions paid by enterprises.
