A job fair targeting migrant workers in Shanghai, March 12, 2015.

China will create more than 10 million jobs in the urban areas in 2015, and to ensure that registered urban unemployment rate does not exceed 4.5 percent.

That is according to Chinese Premier Li Keqiang's government work report.

He also highlighted in the report that popular entrepreneurship and innovation would be the new engines to spur economic growth in the country.

The Chinese government encourages emerging industries and new types of businesses by adding more funds for business development and innovation to the 40-billion-yuan government fund that is already in place.

So will China be able to produce millions more new jobs this year, with the downward pressure on its economy? How can China encourage more business startups, especially by college graduates?
