The city, cap­i­tal of Guang­dong prov­ince, is the south­ern gateway to the coun­try and should also study and ex­plore a new em­ploy­ment guar­an­tee sys­tem for the city’s for­eign­ers, in­di­cat­ing those who in­vite and em­ploy for­eign­ers must take all re­spon­si­bil­ity for them, a se­nior leg­is­la­tor said.

“And Guangzhou should build spe­cial plat­forms for for­eign­ers to seek trans­la­tors and in­ter­preters, med­i­cal treat­ment and re­lated ser­vices, as well as the es­tab­lish­ment of data­banks for the over­seas peo­ple,” ac­cord­ing to Cai Guo­qiang, head of the com­mit­tee of over­seas Chi­nese, for­eign, eth­nic and re­li­gious af­fairs of the Guangzhou Peo­ple’s Congress.
