The policy, jointly released by Beijing Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau, Beijing municipal market regulation and administration bureau, and Beijing Municipal Commerce Bureau, removes the investment restriction on foreign capital.

This aims to allow overseas investors to invest in the city's vocational skill training sector in various forms so as to meet the demand for skillful talents needed in industrial transformation and upgrading.

The policy also stipulates to provide equal treatment of overseas investors and domestic investors. For example, in aspects such as educational setting standards, approval procedures, supervision and management, foreign investors can enjoy the same treatment as domestic private vocational skill training institutions in the city.
