Xifeng county – administered by Guiyang, capital of Southwest China's Guizhou province – has reportedly been focusing on stabilizing local employment through four ways: issuing subsidies, establishing platforms, launching training programs and initiating and holding job fairs.

Last year, the county issued 3.63 million yuan ($569,547) in subsidies to 2,778 personnel and 100 firms, 11.86 million yuan in entrepreneurship guarantee loans for 93 business start-ups and 65,000 yuan in grants to 13 entrepreneurs.

Moreover, local government departments reportedly coordinated efforts to launch job training programs that involved 6,824 people.

Public welfare positions have also been provided by the government to help those who find it more difficult to get employed. During 2021, 686 people benefited from these positions in Xifeng.
