It’s being reported that the Chinese government may set up an immigration bureau by the end of this year to attract more overseas talents to work and live in the country.

The idea appears in a report by Bloomberg, which cited an inside source.

In February, the State Council, China’s cabinet, issued a notice on improving the management of permanent residence for foreigners. On June 30th, China gained approval to become a member of the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Dr. Wang Huiyao, president of the Center for China and Globalization (CCG), notes that the introduction of foreign talents will act as a driving force to China’s economic growth and promote the move towards an economic pattern that is driven by consumption and innovation.

Since June 2015, China’s Public Securities authorities simplified procedures of getting permanent residence for foreign talents in some high-tech research centers and foreign trade zones in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangdong and Fujian.

Statistics show that since China issued permanent residence in 2004, only 7,300 foreign people have received the permit. At present, about 600,000 foreigners are living in China, accounting for only 0.04 percent of the country’s total population.
