A total of 100 billion yuan from the unemployment insurance fund will be used to support enterprises in maintaining stable payrolls and providing training programs.

Well, that's certainly something that Xi and Macron can see eye to eye on : the idea of welfare for enterprises as the primary shield against unemployment (as opposed to actual payments to the unemployed). That's what kept the French economy ticking over the Covid period, so I imagine he will carry it over to cover the effects of the war in Europe.
