News: Former Heilongjiang Organization Department chief Wang Aiwen (王爱文) was transferred to Ministry of Civil Affairs (MCA) today as Vice Minister.
Quick Take: Wang started his political career in 1987 in the then-Ministry of Labor, which was replaced by and integrated into the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security (MHRSS) in 1998. During his 18-year service, Wang was mainly in charge of employment-related matters. He was transferred to Heilongjiang in 2005, and had then been promoted within the province, and became the provincial Organization Department head in 2016. During his term in Heilongjiang, Wang has been widely praised for his capacity—especially his political performance in Yichun, where the city saw a GDP growth of almost 10% every year while he was serving as Party Secretary from 2011 to 2015. Now that he is appointed back to the central government, his role in MCA remains to be seen.
