“In the past, for­eign stu­dents who grad­u­ated in Shang­hai had to work over­seas for two years be­fore they could re­turn to Shang­hai to work. We are now work­ing on a pi­lot pol­icy to al­low for­eign stu­dents to work in Shang­hai soon af­ter they grad­u­ate.”

In or­der to at­tract in­ter­na­tional tal­ent, the Shang­hai Mu­nic­i­pal Hu­man Re­sources and So­cial Se­cu­rity Bureau will is­sue a se­ries of new poli­cies to sim­plify the pro­ce­dures of ap­ply­ing for per­ma­nent res­i­dency by for­eign ex­perts. In the past, for­eign work­ers had to leave China at the age of 60. Chen Hao, deputy direc­tor of the bureau, told lo­cal me­dia that they will re­lax the age lim­i­ta­tions as well as give young for­eign stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to stay and work in Shang­hai fol­low­ing grad­u­a­tion.
