More than 5.7 million rural Chinese have returned from cities to their hometowns to startup businesses, Vice Minister of Agriculture Chen Xiaohua said Thursday.
Among them, 4.5 million people are rural migrant workers who used to work in urban areas away from home, while the rest are mainly fresh graduates and retired soldiers who left home for education or service, Chen said at a press briefing.
Meanwhile, rural China has attracted 1.3 million urban people, including scientists and technicians, from their homes in cities to participate in rural entrepreneurship, Chen said.
The data was released after the government released a set of guidelines earlier this week encouraging people to...
The Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) policy-setting Central Committee, which usually meets once a year, is set to be convened in a military hotel in Beijing on October 24. The 370-odd members, including President Xi Jinping and other Politburo members, will also discuss rules that could force senior officials to disclose whether their spouses and children have foreign passports or permanent residence in other countries.
A party source in Beijing said previous attempts to introduce assets-disclosure regulations were voted down by Central Committee meetings held in the last years of the tenure of ex-President Hu Jintao, who ruled from 2002 to 2012. "Resistance to disclosure laws is very strong...

Two months ago, Tin, with 25 years of experience in journalism, started an online news outlet, Northern Light Media, but realized he knew little about online media.
So he jumped at the offer to join a 10-day media workshop provided by the university's China-ASEAN Center of Training that targets media executives and journalists from Southeast Asian countries.

Xuan Li, The Conversation - One of the greatest fears of Chinese parents is coming true: China’s young people are turning away from marriage. The trend is also worrying the government.
After a whole decade of increases in the national marriage rate, China witnessed its second year of decline in the number of newly registered unions in 2015, with a6.3% drop from 2014 and 9.1% from 2013.
This was accompanied by a rise in the age of marriage, which has increased by about a year and a half in the first ten years of this century.
