For­eign­ers to be re­cruited by Bei­jing govt

Global Times US Edition - - TOPNEWS - By Zhang Hui

Bei­jing’s new pol­icy to re­cruit over­seas tal­ent for gov­ern­ment or­gans with com­pet­i­tive salaries has shown the cap­i­tal’s open­ness and in­clu­sive­ness in its im­ple­men­ta­tion of the spirit of the 19th Na­tional Congress of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC), ex­perts said Mon­day.

Bei­jing is of­fer­ing 17 posts to both for­eign and Chi­nese tal­ent at de­part­ments in­clud­ing the Bei­jing Mu­nic­i­pal Bureau of Fi­nan­cial Work and Bei­jing Mu­nic­i­pal Bureau of In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty, ac­cord­ing to a no­tice posted on the web­site of Bei­jing’s hu­man re­source de­part­ment.

The el­i­gi­ble can­di­dates will be paid based on in­ter­na­tional stan­dards and will en­joy fa­vor­able poli­cies, read the no­tice re­leased on Fri­day.

The re­cruit­ment is the third round of the cap­i­tal’s over­seas tal­ent re­cruit­ment plan since 2012.

Most jobs listed re­quire a doc­tor­ate de­gree and set an age limit of be­tween 45 and 55.

“The re­cruit­ment plan demon­strates an open and in­clu­sive men­tal­ity from the gov­ern­ment that it is will­ing to learn from good for­eign ex­pe­ri­ence,” Wang Hong­wei, a pro­fes­sor at the School of Pub­lic Ad­min­is­tra­tion and Pol­icy at the Ren­min Univer­sity of China, told the Global Times on Mon­day.

Wang said that “open­ness” is also men­tioned sev­eral times in the re­port of the 19th CPC Na­tional Congress.

“Peo­ple with tal­ent are a strate­gic re­source for China as it en­deav­ors to achieve na­tional re­ju­ve­na­tion and stay ahead in in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion,” the re­port said.

“Sec­tors like fi­nance and tech­nol­ogy are more in­ter­na­tional, and over­seas tal­ent could bring greater ex­per­tise to the gov­ern­ment,” Wang said.
