Xinhua, July 31, 2014 Adjust font size:

China will provide better services for migrant workers in cities to help them become urbanites, according to an executive meeting of the State Council on Wednesday.

The meeting, presided over by Premier Li Keqiang, said that improving services for the vast group will help nurture a high quality work force, expand consumption and let them enjoy the fruits of the country's growth.

It will also promote social equity and contribute to sustainable and healthy economic growth, according to a statement released after the meeting.

The country should help migrant workers find jobs in cities by raising their vocational skills through training and increase job opportunities that are suitable for them.

China should also encourage migrant workers to start businesses by offering fiscal support, investment guidance, loan guarantees and interest subsidies, the statement said.

Official data showed that China had 174 million migrant workers who worked in cities and towns away from their home by the end of June.
