Migrants made to feel at home in Jinshan

A residential community for migrant workers in the Jinshan Industrial Park was recently put into full operation, helping solve the housing problem of this disadvantaged group.

Covering around 58,000 square meters, the Convenience Center for Migrant Workers (the first construction phase) provides new apartments for more than 1,000 workers in the park. In order to meet their different needs, various flat types - from dorms to suites - are offered.

"Jinshan Industrial Park has a large number of migrant workers, a group that needs extra care," says Wu Hui, deputy director of the Community Management Center of the park. "To make them feel at home in Jinshan has been a priority for the local government."

Statistics shows that more than 50,000 migrants are working in the industrial park.

The new community currently has canteens, cafes, digital reading rooms, a playground, convenience stores and a mini-cinema.

A trade union and a residential committee have also been set up to better protect the legal rights of the migrant workers. To facilitate the transport for workers, shuttle bus lines have been launched to run back and forth.

The second phase, covering 68,000 square meters, is now under construction and will be completed by the end of next year.
