In this paper, pressures of population and labor shortage to be faced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) will be analyzed based on the situation of East Asiaeconomic integration. A solution with new opinions about the PRC’s labor and population strategies is proposed accordingly. Meanwhile, considering the situation of labor shortage and the degrading of population quality in the PRC, a strategic policy plan is suggested to restructure the PRC’s labor forces in short, medium, and long terms.
