Women Expect Stronger Support in Doing Business

 In a recent online survey on modern Chinese women's top expectations, 43.74 percent of respondents expected more support to urban and rural women's own businesses.

According to the Chinese Women Entrepreneurs' Association, women accounts for 20 percent of all Chinese entrepreneurs.

Above 21 percent of women entrepreneurs start their own business, increasing by 17 percent compared with 10 years ago and close to the proportion of male counterparts.

About 80 percent of Chinese businesswomen are at the ages between 30 and 50 and 55.8 percent of them have college education or above, which is higher than men. Female employees take up nearly 60 percent of all in enterprises that are led by women and 95 percent of such corporations have made profit.

About 50 percent of businesswomen engage in manufacturing and industry and 45 percent work in service (tertiary) industry.

Private companies account for 41 percent of businesses managed by women entrepreneurs, while state-owned and collective ones occupy 28 percent respectively.

Companies run by female entrepreneurs pay special attention to women's employment. Sixty three percent of such companies have more than half women workers.
