national vocational skills competition
Improving vocational skills is a crucial foundation for the China's manufacturing and services industries to move to a medium-to-high level.
Approved by the State Council, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security began holding national vocational skills competitions from 2020.
The first competition, running from Thursday to Sunday, will see over 2,500 contestants and 2,300 referees in 86 disciplines.
The vocational skills competition provides a platform for workers to display their skills and learn from each other, and plays a positive role in expanding the skilled workforce and promoting social and economic development.
Efforts should be made to carry forward the spirit of model workers and craftsmanship, stimulate more workers, especially the younger generation, to improve their skills, and foster more highly skilled workers and craftsmen in a bid to achieve the goal of fully building a modern socialist country.
