China to train 10,000 certified national logistics specialists
( 2003-11-03 09:48) (Xinhua)

China launched training courses on Saturday for certified national trade logistics specialists.

China plans to train more than 10,000 certified national logistics specialists in 2004, according to the Logistics Specialists National Qualification Certification Office.

More than 100 logistics experts and scholars from more than 50 universities and colleges around the country will be invited to give lectures for the training courses.

In accordance with "the national qualification standards for logistics specialists" promulgated by the Ministry of Labor and Social Security, the country's logistics professionals will be divided in three categories, namely logistics assistant, logistics specialist and advanced logistics specialist.

Since China's accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO), the country's logistics business is expected to follow international practice as soon as possible.

Logistics professionals have become popular in the country. It is estimated that in 2010, China will need 300,000 to 400,000 logistics professionals who are of junior college level or above. However, currently there are only 5,000 logistics university graduates in China every year.

According to sources with the Logistics Specialists National Qualification Certification Office, more than 60 national logistics specialist training centers will be set up in 24 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions around the country. Unified national examinations for logistics specialist qualifications will be held four times every year.
