Zheng’an County, Guizhou Province, becomes “China’s Guitar Manufacturing Hometown”, creating 14,000 jobs


On June 14, the State Council Information Office held a series of press conferences on “Promoting High-quality Development”. Li Bingjun, deputy secretary of the Guizhou Provincial Party Committee and governor, said that we have always adhered to the people-centered development philosophy, taking the protection and improvement of people’s livelihood as the fundamental starting point and foothold of all work, and striving to make the people’s pockets more and more bulging and their lives better and better.

Li Bingjun introduced that in September last year, Shi Chuanying, an embroiderer from Taijiang, Guizhou, took her Miao embroidery to Milan Fashion Week. There are more than 500,000 trained Guizhou embroiderers like her. Now, more and more Guizhou compatriots who are abroad have found ways to get rich by returning to their hometown. For example, Zheng’an County in Guizhou has attracted talents to return to their hometown to develop the guitar industry, becoming the “Hometown of Chinese Guitar Manufacturing” and driving 14,000 jobs. In recent years, Guizhou has added 600,000 new urban jobs each year, organized labor exports, and the number of migrant workers outside the province has stabilized at around 6 million, which is called the “Six-Six Employment Stability Plan”.

At the same time, Li Bingjun mentioned that in order to make travel more convenient for the people, every city and prefecture in the province has an airport and high-speed rail, every county has a highway, every village has a cement road, and industrial roads lead directly to the fields. Express parcels are delivered to the doorsteps of farmers, and they can take buses when they go out. Traffic blockage has become history. In order to allow the people to enjoy high-quality medical resources, 5 national regional medical centers have been built, and the people in Guizhou can enjoy the high-quality medical resources brought by developed areas.

In addition, in order to allow more Guizhou children to go to college and receive better education, Guizhou Province’s higher education has entered the stage of popularization. During the 14th Five-Year Plan period, 154,000 higher education degrees will be added. At the same time, centering on economic and social development, especially industrial needs, strengthen the construction of science and engineering colleges and science and engineering disciplines, and accelerate the development of vocational education. “The money spent on education last year accounted for one-fifth of Guizhou’s fiscal expenditure.” Li Bingjun said.

Li Bingjun said that we are very concerned about solving the living problems of people with special difficulties. The social security standards for urban and rural subsistence allowances, children in welfare institutions, and the disabled will be gradually improved according to the level of economic and social development, so that everyone can share the fruits of high-quality development. In the next step, we will continue to implement more measures to benefit people’s livelihood and warm their hearts, so that the people of Guizhou can live a more secure and better life.
