More experts are needed in China

More experts are needed in China

Publicerat av Cecilia Helland Wednesday, 22 February 2012.


The Chinese government is planning a fresh start of the project, "One Thousand Foreign Experts Project," in order to attract new specialists from other countries.

Over a period of 10 years the country wants to have 1.000 experts in order to promote innovation and research. The project, which started last year, has so far attracted 214 candidates from USA, Japan and Germany.

The goal for the project is that Chinese employers should sign contracts with expert candidates and then apply for financial assistance from the government. An aid amounts to U.S. $ 159,000 from the state and if the candidate is a graduate scientist the aid may amount to U.S. $ 795,000

In addition to financial aid, the candidate should also obtain a visa, housing, health care, insurance, and of course salary.

A candidate cannot be Chinese, must be under 65 years of age and not employed in China. The candidate must work at least 3 years in the country and spend at least nine months per year in China.

Although Beijing has more than 40,000 foreign experts who work there every year, the country wants to reach out to more individuals with expertise.
