About the event

The “2016 Amazing China” election is the only Chinese city ranking based on votes from expats living in China. Votes are cast by expats from a wide array of professions and social ranks, ranging from Nobel Laureates and Chinese Friendship Award recipients to foreign employees based in China.


The program aims to showcase the glamor of Chinese cities and their readiness at attracting foreign talent and intelligence, to explore the priority and values when they begin job-hunting and entrepreneurship in China; to guide cities to pay greater attention to creating a favorable working and living environment so as to bring in more high-level foreign personnel.
