Monday,Jun 11, 2018

 

The book sets the context for the creation of China’s SIA. In recent years, countries around the world are increasingly recognizing the importance of attracting top talent for national development. According to a new UN report, in 2015, 244 million people were living and working outside their native countries, around 3.3% of the world’s population. Flows of people have become an important component of globalization, a trend that is set to continue in future.

Section one of the book outlines the functions of the SIA and driving factors and trends for international migration. Section two gives an overview of immigration management in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, Australia, Singapore and Japan, drawing comparisons and highlighting lessons for China’s system. Section three elaborates on current trends, policy issues and the economic role of immigration in China, analyzing key challenges and solutions to overcome these issues regarding legislation, administrative innovations, and supporting policies.
