BEIJING- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and Chairman of the Central Military Commission Hu Jintao Saturday issued an order to publicize the Regulations on Resettlement of Ex-Servicemen, which will take effect from November 1.
Formulated with an aim to protect the legitimate rights and interests of ex-servicemen, the 53-article document highlights a series of initiatives designed for the appropriate placement of veterans.
State organs, social groups, enterprises and public institutions should give preferential treatment to ex-servicemen while recruiting staff members or contract workers, according to the regulations.
The regulations provide that demobilized soldiers who register for a civil servant examination or apply for a position in government institutions will be given preference.
Those companies or organizations which recruit retired soldiers will enjoy favorable policies prescribed by current laws and regulations.
