Can China lure more foreign talents with green cards? | Updated: 2017-02-10 16:03

The issue for me is about getting a work permit. This problem exists in most countries but to different degrees. Personally I know I have talents and skills to offer and know that I would be able to find employment that benefited me and China. While I held jobs in Canada for the last 20 years of my career that required a university degree as my experience and education was deemed at minimum to be equivalent, I never graduated university. There are several countries that I can legally work in but China is not one of them. I accept that in this world there are a million things I can have and there are a million things I cannot have.

Since I will not work illegally, I will not take one of the jobs that were offered to me in China. This is a loss for me and a loss for China. A piece of paper is one indication of qualification, in my opinion it should not be the only one, however I respect the rights and laws of any country I visit or live in. During my time living in China I focused on three things; enjoying my retirement, exchange tutoring in English (no money involved) and learning Chinese.

Can China lure more foreign talents with green cards?
