China lags in at­tract­ing for­eign tal­ent: re­port

China Daily (USA) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

With high-end work­ers leav­ing and in­suf­fi­cient high-end for­eign per­son­nel, China lags the world in at­tract­ing an in­ter­na­tional work­force and ur­gently needs to take ac­tion to solve the prob­lem, a re­port has found.

The re­port ti­tled Blue Book of Re­gional Tal­ent was pub­lished on Mon­day by the Cen­ter for China and Glob­al­iza­tion, a Bei­jing­based in­de­pen­dent think tank, and the In­sti­tute of De­vel­op­ment Stud­ies at South­west­ern Univer­sity of Fi­nance and Eco­nomics in Chengdu, Sichuan prov­ince.

The pro­por­tion of in­ter­na­tional work­ers in China is far be­low the in­ter­na­tional av­er­age. In 2015, only 0.06 per­cent of the coun­try’s pop­u­la­tion were for­eign­ers, while the av­er­age world­wide pro­por­tion is 3.3 per­cent, the re­port said, cit­ing var­i­ous sources from the United Na­tions.
