(ECNS) -- Beijing is projected to face a shortage of about 8,000 workers in the first half of the year, over 70 percent of them in the leasing industry, business services, manufacturing, and the wholesale and retail sectors, according to Beijing Employment Service Center.

The center's human resources supply and demand report was based on data from more than 7,000 enterprises that are together offering a net increase of 59,000 jobs. About 79 percent of these new jobs are in the services sector.

Cultural and creative businesses, manufacturing and logistics account for 61.5 percent of total human resources demand, a clear growth from the 56.4 percent over the same period last year.

Beijing also has its highest demand for technical professionals in four years, which accounts for 29 percent of the total human resources gap.

In contrast, demand for workers in clothes wholesale, plastic film making and other sectors that face controlled development in the capital has dropped.
