The Chinese government has decided to suspend the release of information on youth unemployment, which has been steadily increasing for the past seven months. In June, the youth unemployment rate reached a record high of 21.3% for those aged 16 to 24 in urban areas. The government claims that the data collection methods need improvement. This move has raised concerns among investors and executives, who believe that the government’s control of information is hindering business operations in China. The suspension of the report has led to criticism online, with many accusing the government of trying to hide negative information. The struggle for young people to find work highlights broader concerns about the Chinese economy, which has been facing declining exports, falling consumer confidence, and deflation. The government has implemented measures to boost youth employment, such as offering subsidies to encourage hiring, but the economy has been slow to recover. The mismatch between labor supply and demand, as well as the preference for jobs in certain industries, has contributed to the problem. Rising youth unemployment could potentially lead to social and political issues in the future.
