Report: Getting top workers a problem
With high-end workers leaving and insufficient high-end foreign personnel, China lags behind the world in attracting an international workforce and urgently needs to take action to solve the problem, according to a recent report, Blue Book of Regional Talent. The report was published on Sept 11 by the Center for China and Globalization, a Beijing-based independent think tank, and the Institute of Development Studies at Southwestern University of Finance and Economics in Chengdu, Sichuan province. Meanwhile, the country is troubled by an outflow of talent. At least 35 million people from the Chinese mainland work overseas. Shanghai is the most competitive region in China in attracting high-end international workers. The municipality, however, only rates about 3.9 points in an evaluation index system with six parts, including the scale and structure for international workers, the policies for attracting more and the quality of life they expect.
