Most of the posts lie in the prosperous cities of Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Huizhou, Jiangmen and Zhaoqing in the Greater Bay Area, according to the announcement.

Graduates from Hong Kong and Macao will get the same treatment and benefits as local residents after recruitment, according to the announcement.

Hiring university graduates from Hong Kong and Macao, the authorities said, is intended to help Guangdong, a major global production base, to attract more talent to support the province's sustainable economic growth and further promote the exchange of talent between Guangdong and the two SARs in the years ahead.

Good working and living environments and broad employment prospects in the mainland are seen as major attractions for the graduates.
