Comment on "Policies to help migrants settling in cities"( China Daily, Feb 24)
It is indeed welcome news that much stronger financial and other support is at last to be extended to those workers from rural areas who migrate to find work in China's cities and towns.
China's growing prosperity, over recent years, has been vastly boosted by the export of goods manufactured in factories. Most rural migrants working in the factories have contributed significantly to the economic miracle of modern China. They deserve a far greater level of State support.
