Lujiazui issues residence permit for foreigner
Lujiazui area of China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone recently issued its first “permanent residence permit for foreign nationals.” The recipient, Jun Hirasawa, is a Japanese national and chairman of Marubeni (Shanghai) Co, Xinmin Evening News reported Wednesday.
In February, Shanghai Lujiazui Financial City Human Resources Management Association was authorized as an official expat work service station at the Lujiazui branch of Pilot Free Trade Zone and Zhangjiang National Innovation Demonstration Zone. Hirasawa was the first foreigner to submit an application, along with a letter of recommendation from the free trade zone, at the service station for permanent residence.
At the end of 2016, the Ministry of Public Security of China issued 10 new exit-entry policies and measures to support the development of Shanghai’s science and technology innovation. It gave the regional administrative committee the right to recommend who can apply for permanent residence.
