City beats its own job target by 25%

SHANGHAI has created more than 630,000 jobs this year - 25 percent more than the city originally planned, local authorities said yesterday.

Most of the newly created jobs are in service industries and advanced manufacturing businesses, said Zhang Dezhi, an official with the Shanghai Human Resources and Social Security Bureau.

Creating new jobs has been included in the city's "10 practical projects" since 2004, with around 600,000 jobs created each year.

For 2010, the city set a target of 500,000 new jobs.

Zhang also said that 170 aid centers to help disabled people find work were set up this year. However, he did not say how many people found employment this way.

The other nine of the city's 10 practical projects have also met their goals. These included equipping 160 schools that admit non-local students with libraries and sports facilities and putting more than 12 million energy-saving lamps into use, according to the Shanghai government.

The 10 practical projects for 2011 are yet to be decided.
