As of last year, China had 1.26 million students abroad, accounting for 25 percent of the world’s total number of students studying outside their native country, according to the 2016 Report on the Development of Chinese Students Studying Abroad.
In all, more than 4 million Chinese studied abroad between 1978 and 2015, with 2.2 million of them returning to China.
Many of them have taken advantage of the Thousand Talents Program, a central government initiative to recruit global experts launched in 2008.
China’s industrial parks also help attract foreign talent. There are more than 300 industrial parks, housing nearly 24,000 enterprises, where returnees can start their own businesses.
Of all cities, Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, has attracted the most.
However, many returnees are also facing increasing challenges, as the number of such graduates has increased rapidly, the report said. More than 60 percent of them end up in entry-level positions, with a majority of them saying they are not content with their jobs.
About 12 percent of them choose to start their own businesses in strategic industries such as bioengineering and information technology. They also prefer to work in first-tier cities such as Beijing and Shanghai.
