BEIJING - China Friday announced a raft of measures to help young people, especially college graduates, find jobs and set up businesses in the latest move to stabilize employment.

The State Council detailed supportive policies in a document, including subsidies to employers that hire more graduates and guaranteed loans for young entrepreneurs.

Micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises that employ more graduates will get social insurance subsidies, guaranteed loans, interest discounts, and tax and fee reductions

Key groups including college graduates are under pressure to secure jobs as there will be a record number of new graduates from universities and colleges this year.
