Producer services are becoming increasingly important in the process of social and economic development. It has become one of the main indicators to measure the comprehensive competitiveness and modernization level of a region, and gradually become an important way to alleviate employment pressure and solve employment problems.

The present and future, the direct and indirect employment contributions of producer services are defined, and the essential characteristics of producer services sub-industries are deeply analyzed, which can provide references for Beijing to formulate future development plans and employment policies.
