The Ministry of Education said on Nov 29 that a total of 8.34 million college students are expected to graduate in 2019, who will face great challenges in finding jobs or starting up businesses.
"However, we have the condition and capability to deal with challenges and difficulties, as the country's economy runs steadily and the business environment keeps improving," said vice minister of education Lin Huiqing said at a video conference on college graduate employment.
Lin called for more efforts in education of career planning and special training for students who have difficulties in finding jobs.
Employment discrimination should be rejected, Lin said, adding that there should be an effort to fight employment fraud.
