On the morning of August 6, the Information Office of Shandong Provincial People’s Government held a press conference to brief on the province’s recent policies and plans to boost employment and entrepreneurship, and answered questions from reporters.

According to Xia Luqing, deputy director of the Human Resources and Social Security Department of Shandong Province, the unemployment insurance has been taken as an important policy tool to stabilize and ensure employment in Shandong. Since the beginning of 2020, a total of 5.61 billion yuan has been paid in unemployment insurance, and the basic living security level of the unemployed has improved significantly.

Shandong has extended the coverage of unemployment insurance to all the insured unemployed. In 2020, 1.64 billion yuan has been issued in unemployment subsidies to the unemployed who have not yet been employed after the expiry of unemployment insurance benefits and the insured unemployed who fail to meet the conditions for the entitlement to unemployment insurance benefits.

In terms of the implementation of the policies assisting enterprises in stabilizing jobs, Shandong issued a total of 3.47 billion yuan in unemployment insurance premium refunds last year, stabilizing 8,807,800 jobs.

Shandong also issues subsidies for upgrading technical skills to those who have obtained vocational qualification certificates or skill level certificates. Since the beginning of last year, a total of 1.54 billion yuan has been issued in subsidies for upgrading technical skills, which has enhanced the employment stability and fundamentally reduced the risk of unemployment.
