Ailing deputy on the job
State media yesterday reported that ailing Vice-Premier Huang Ju has issued another directive - on employment.
The cancer-stricken vice-premier sent a directive to a national employment conference in Nanchang , Jiangxi province , on Friday, Xinhua reported. However, Mr Huang was apparently not well enough to attend the conference, as the keynote speech was delivered by State Council secretary-general Hua Jianmin .
Mr Huang has issued directives before, apparently to send the message that he is making a partial return to politics.
