The objective of these agreements is to promote the orderly flow of the labor force throughout these regions and secure stable employment for migrant workers.

According to the agreements, Sichuan Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security will work with its counterparts from the eight provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities to enhance employment cooperation across multiple dimensions.

To strengthen labor supply-demand matchmaking, both sides will jointly establish and refine an employment information sharing platform, organize and hold labor supply-demand docking events, and promote the timely sharing and precise, as-needed push of employment information for migrant workers across labor-exporting and -importing regions. Human resource service agencies, labor service companies, professional labor cooperatives, and labor brokers in Sichuan and the above-mentioned regions are encouraged to carry out labor matchmaking, exchange, and cooperation activities to continuously expand the scale of labor transfer.

To advance the development and expansion of labor service brands, both sides will collaborate to strengthen the recognition and cultivation of labor service brands, set up cooperation channels for labor service brands, and transport characteristic and well-regarded large labor service brands in alignment with local industrial and market demand. They will intensify the publicity and promotion of each other's labor service brands, regularly organize cooperation and exchange activities for labor service brands, enhance the popularity and reputation of such brands, and boost their labor service brands' ability to attract job seekers.

In terms of expanding skills training, various enterprises and technical institutes are encouraged to conduct school-enterprise cooperation and school-school cooperation and promote the co-development and -sharing of training resources. Order-based training, targeted training, entrusted training, and other training models are adopted to raise the pertinence of training. Joint efforts will be made to strengthen the pre-employment training before workers are dispatched and the skill improvement training following the recruitment of workers. These initiatives are intended to assist workers in meeting the requirements of their respective job roles.

In terms of fortifying cooperation in rights and interests protection, both sides will enhance their cooperative efforts to protect the rights and interests of migrant workers, thoroughly tackle the issue of delayed wage payments to migrant workers, and promote the inclusion of migrant workers in the social insurance system at their places of employment.
