(China Plus) Seven expatriates, including a 2016 Nobel Prize winner in chemistry, have been awarded permanent residency by China's government, as part of the Shanghai Entry-Exit Talents Plan that came into effect on May 2, reports Chinanews.com.

According to the Shanghai plan released in January, entry-exit policies will be changed to make it easier for people with talents in urgent demand and short supply to move to China. Other changes will allow overseas residents to work on start-ups in China, and for some international students to access two-year residence permits.

A ceremony was held at the Shanghai Public Security Bureau for the first four recipients of permanent residency under the new policy. The four included Feringa Bernard Lucas, the winner of the 2016 Nobel Prize in chemistry, who has also served as a visiting professor at East China University of Science and Technology.

It is a move in the right direction but until China introduces intellectual property rights it will remain nothing more than an empty promise bearing no tangible fruit. Why would a leading scientist who is on the verge of greatness move to a country where the government owns all intellectual rights of it's people ?

Who tells you that you are on the verge of being great?
Do they know something you don't know or are they just being charitable?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Better than giving it all to your employer which is what you do if you want to be hired by a high tech company in the west.

By the way, how do you know if you're on the verge of being great? Who comes and tells you?

Remember the guy who invented artificial diamonds and "General Electric" gave him a $10 savings
bond as a reward and then GE proceeded to make billions off his invention?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
