Guizhou has been praised as "the first choice for business start-ups" by many overseas Chinese returnees, with its one-stop services including financial support, housing security and tax incentives.

The settlement of Foxconn, China Telecom, China Mobile and China Unicom data centers in Guiyang, capital of Guizhou, has driven the province to become a top-level big data center in China and has drawn the attention of several high-tech and energy-saving enterprises.

Leading players in the industry see a future in Guizhou in the cloud computing and big data industry, according to the Guizhou Talent Fair Committee.

"Talent shortage is the main concern that Guizhou has to overcome," an official of the Guizhou Human Resources and Social Security Bureau said, mentioning that things are going well as Guizhou has changed its way of attracting talent.

Methods including consultation, lecturing, part-time and short-term employment, project contract and technical cooperation. Now, with a more flexible talent flow system, the talent brought into Guizhou outnumbers that moving out.

The province has created a green channel to introduce senior professionals that have international work experience and are familiar with international regulations and modern management.

Guizhou plans to, in three to five years, cultivate about 10 world-class professionals who have the potential to become academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), 100 national influential leading personnel and 1,000 leaders in related industries.

Big data helps to attract talent. Guizhou has become the focus of the world's big data and cloud computing industry with the establishment of the first national big data industry clustering demonstration district on February 25.

Based on the big data industry, the province has introduced policies to select and train professionals, solve their housing problems, and strengthen professional and technical teams.  

According to incomplete statistics provided by the Guizhou Talent Fair Committee, the Guizhou talent fair has become the major platform to introduce talent on a large scale, attracting an average of over 30,000 talents each session with 5,502 of them employed at the fair in total, including 768 doctors and 2,765 postgraduates.
