BEIJING - Political advisors called for efforts to boost the development of family service industry on Thursday in order to increase employment and improve people's livelihood.
In a biweekly consultation session presided over by top political advisor Yu Zhengsheng, members of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference stressed that home services are closely related to people's life quality and should be given great importance.
With increasing income and growing aged population in China, services for the elderly, the disabled and children are booming, the advisors said in the discussion.
According to a statement issued after the session, political advisors suggested the government pay more attention and provide more supportive policies for the industry, including tax reductions and personnel training.
Businesses in the industry should focus on market demand and non-government groups should also be encouraged to contribute to the sector's development.
