Nanjing relaxes hukou rules as cities strive to attract more young workers

By CANG WEI in Nanjing | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2021-02-23 00:00

Rules for obtaining hukou-permanent household registration-are being eased in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, as it competes with other cities for an infusion of younger workers to solve the problems of an aging society and a shortage of labor.

As many cities grapple with an aging population-a group that typically pulls out of the workforce upon retirement-younger replacements have become coveted.

In a move designed to attract workers from outside the area, Nanjing announced on Thursday that people will be able to get hukou in four of its 11 districts if they pay local social insurance for six months and have a local residence permit, which can be easily obtained at a public security bureau.
