China ranks second in the world as an expat destination for career progression, only after the U.S., said the Expat Explorer Survey recently issued by HSBC.

The survey invited more than 27,500 expats in over 150 countries and regions this year to share their experiences in different areas ranging from personal finance to living conditions.

More than 70% of the foreigners living in China believe that the country has offered a broader vocational prospect for them, up 16% since last year.

Half of the foreigners said they have developed new skills after coming to the country, and 55% of them had their disposable income raised.
Higher income is the reason why Indian software engineer surnamed Jayanth decided to work here. “I don’t have to compete much thanks to the rich public resources here,” he said, adding that he will have more opportunities when he returns to his home country because of his working experience in China.

Dominic Morgan, who comes from UK and now works in the media industry in Shanghai, noted that China is set to become the most important country and market in the world and that Chinese enterprises would also become very strong in overseas markets.

Though his income is less in China than that in the UK, the cost of living is much lower here, Morgan said, adding that his life experiences have also been enriched.

Thanks to the rapid development, China is gradually narrowing the gap between itself and the developed countries, said Chen Wei, head of Zhangjiang Platform Economy Research Institute. The country is offering more opportunities for foreigners with improved environment and policies, Chen added.

Shanghai, for instance, has always been one of the hottest cities in China for foreign talents. By the first half of this year, a total of 896 high-level foreign talents in the city have been recruited by the Thousand Talents Plan, a recruitment program for global experts.

In addition, more than 140,000 foreigners are currently working and studying in Shanghai, and the city has become a permanent residence for 93,000 foreign experts.

China failed again to be the world's Number One: it is the biggest job market but it has fallen to Place Number Two in terms of popularity by foreign employees working in China after a country that has only 25% of the number of people and jobs that China has.

Meanwhile, how many MILLIONS of Chinese have emigrated abroad for good?

Why is this China hating trash (Seneca) allowed in this forum and this country? Every thread is filled with his unhinged racism and hatred against fellow Chinese.

I guess little you equipped with a caddy loaded with several bouquets of welcoming roses for the arrivals is enough to handle "the rush"...

May I kindly inform you that while Chinese living in the West are foreigners there, they are Chinese again when they return to China and do not qualify for the special new expat treatment I think this stands to reason, don't you?
