A total of 125 enterprises with Taiwan investment made 1,929 job offers at a job fair held in Taipei over the weekend, attracting about 15,860 young job hunters.

The jobs cover various industries including education, finance, smart manufacturing, food processing and creative design.

The event, the second of its kind organized by the Shanghai Association of Taiwan Investment Enterprises to attract capable talent from Taiwan to Shanghai, featured 1,111 more job vacancies than last year.

The number of visitors also increased by 50 percent from last year.

Employers taking part received 3,200 resumes on site and another 3,000 online. A total of 286 job hunters received offers after on-site interviews, while others were invited to take part in a second round of interviews.

Shanghai has recently been attracting more and more young people from Taiwan. Over the past four years, more than 300 interns from Taiwan have been employed by Taiwan investment enterprises on the mainland.

In February, the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council introduced 31 measures to promote cross-Strait exchanges and cooperation.

Last Friday, Shanghai also announced 55 measures to implement the office's decisions.

The measures include providing equal treatment for Taiwan enterprises and helping Taiwan businesses reduce their manufacturing and operating costs, speeding up transformation and upgrading, and expanding the domestic demand market.

There are also some measures offering Taiwan people the same treatment as mainlanders in study, the setting up of businesses, and working and living on the mainland.
