  • In the traditional planned economic system, China adopted the policy of closing the country to the international world and the economy ran in a closed manner. China then started to open their economy to outside world in 1978, which was then followed by getting involved in GATT negotiations (1986) and WTO negotiations (1995), which symbolize faster integration of China with the world economy. Throughout the course of the integration, the advantages China enjoy by virtue of its huge amount and low cost of rural labor force have been fully developed, China has gained significant shares of international markets of low-end products through such channels as processing sector trade. During the internationalization, many young rural people have found non-farming jobs, increased their income and promoted growth of the economy. The internationalization is an important source of China’s economic growth, industrialization, urbanization and employment increase.

    This economic growth then followed with the growing numbers of college graduates entering the job market. According to the Chinese government, China will have 195 million college-educated people by 2020. In response to these and other policy challenges, the Chinese leadership launched The National Medium- and Long-term Talent Development Plan (2010–2020), which is a blueprint for creating a highly skilled national work force in China. This plan is the first national comprehensive plan in China’s history of national human resources development and is of vital importance to China’s current and future development in the next decade and beyond. In Chinese, the plan refers to the development of rencai, which can be translated as educated and skilled individuals.

    Some of the issues which are addressed in this Talent Development Plan include establishing National Talent Development Targets, prioritizing research and development (R&D) sectors, creating more business and entrepreneurial rencai, setting up special talent policy management and reform zones that will be compatible with the international practice of talent and human resources management systems, and also producing more liberal policies on foreign rencai and talent exchanges. These policies are translated into the enactment of China Indonesia Youth Exchange Program.

    The Indonesia China Youth Exchange Program (ChIYEP) 2013 was a great adventure for us. By joining this program I and the other Indonesian delegations were invited to explore the Chinese culture, art, history, trade and even their strategic plans toward decades ahead. On the very first day we were all taken into the China National Planning Exhibition Hall in Beijing which we could see their development from the era of dinasty to even 20 years ahead. Beside of visiting company and government office, we also visited museum and other Chinese icons such as Great wall, Forbidden City etc. Above all, we visited Anhui University where we could have a nice chat and share with the Chinese students. Here we got challenged by the Chinese students as well to perform accidental performances.

    The Indonesian delegations were all selected youth from almost all Indonesian provinces, so it was such a great opportunity for us to show our talents. We sang, performed Taekwondo & Silat martial arts moves, danced, played piano, etc. The atmosphere at the Anhui Sports Hall at that time was really wonderful and hilarious. All in all in this ChIYEP we visited 3 big provinces of China which are; Beijing known as the city of government, Anhui the city of culture and Guangzhou the city of business. This program is categorized as short program (9 day program) because this program is only a one phase program which means the Indonesian delegations only runs the program in China (no Indonesian phase),
