I also believe in the popularization of artificial soil technology and development of artificial soil industry to solve the problem of job opportunities for hundreds of millions of people. Our target is that we will make 10 million mu of artificial cultivated land every year, in 200 years 2 billion mu of artificial cultivated land will have been made. You can see that such a huge engineering project will be providing at least 200 million of job opportunities for people for 200 years.
Since it is such a large project, it will naturally need a great many people to carry it out for a period of 200 years and will provide many employment opportunities for people. The employment opportunities can be classified into 4 groups: 1) personnel directly involved in artificial soil and artificial land making; 2) personnel involved in soil-making and land-making related industries; 3) personnel directly involved in production, management, processing and administration on the artificial land; 4) personnel working in auxiliary sectors to production activities on the artificial land. The first and the third group are permanent employment opportunities, and the second and the fourth are non-permanent. We can make a brief estimation. If 10 million mu new land is made every year, no less than 0.1 billion people will be required to carry out material-collecting, classifying, making powders, fermenting organic materials as well as construction of artificial land and transportation of all kinds of materials, etc. With the increase of 10 million mu new land, millions of people will be needed to be engaged in production and management activities. As for the 2 billion mu land, people needed for production and management will be at least 0.2 billion supposing 10 mu/person, excluding the employment opportunities in related industries. Therefore I am not fabricating that the start-up of the project will regulate the labor market, meet the employment requirements of hundreds of millions of people and provide job opportunities for hundreds of millions of people.
