BEIJING - China's job market has remained stable and the quality of employment has been rising, said a white paper on moderate prosperity released by the State Council Information Office Tuesday.

China's employed population rose from 180 million in 1949 to 750 million in 2020, according to the white paper titled "China's Epic Journey from Poverty to Prosperity."
