China launches 12 programs for recruiting talents


10:04, November 11, 2011

BEIJING, Nov. 11 (Xinhua) -- China has launched 12 major programs for recruiting talents and experts, in various fields and at home and broad, to meet the nation's huge demand for top-notch personnel.

The programs are aimed at attracting talents to work in such fields as enterprise operation and management, health care, modern agriculture and culture, according to the personnel management office under the Organizing Committee of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China on Thursday.

These programs are written in the country's National Medium and Long-term Talent Development Plan (2010-2020) unveiled last June, which is a blueprint for China to create a highly skilled national workforce by 2020.

It is also hoped that the move will help increase the country's reserve of personnel who could work in remote, less developed areas and community-level organizations.

Among the programs, the 1,000 Plan or the Recruitment Program of Global Experts, is a special plan aiming at recruiting overseas "innovative" talents, especially Chinese studying abroad.

As of August, 1,510 top-level scientists and professionals had worked in China under the 1,000 Plan, according to statistics.

The government will extend awards, which could amount to 500,000 yuan in cash, to overseas young talents recruited, and consequently allocate 1 million to 3 million yuan within three years as their scientific research funds.
