Basic pensions of urban and rural residents will reach 560 yuan ($87.55) per month in 2025, and 2.9 million will be covered by social insurance.
Additionally planned are major talent programs, talent flows in concert with Hong Kong and Macao, and human resource service industrial parks. The city will be home to 280,000 professional technical talents and 250,000 highly skilled talents by the end of the 14th Five-Year Plan.
Also under the plan, the education of technicians will cater to industrial demands. The number of technician training school students will double to 20,000 by 2025.
A Zhuhai-Macao harmonious labor relation demonstration center will be created with a tripartite mediation center for labor disputes, and likely application of labor law to Hong Kong and Macao enterprises with cross-border offices in Zhuhai.
Moreover, the city will enjoy a reputation of no back pay and record a labor contract signing rate of up to 99 percent.
Data of the provincial and municipal human resources and social security authorities related to basic information, social insurance, employment, talent affairs, and labor relations will be integrated with those of other departments.
