The Beijing Municipal Party Committee Organization Department and the Beijing Human Resources and Social Security Bureau jointly held a press conference on May 13 and released the "2011 Special Program of Introducing Overseas Talent in Beijing." Under the program, Beijing will introduce 436 overseas experts in 2011.

This is Beijing's latest progress in vigorously recruiting high-level creative overseas talent to achieve the goal of "transforming Beijing into a national innovation center" during the 12th Five-Year Plan period.

Song Fengjing, deputy director of the Beijing Human Resources and Social Security Bureau, said that Beijing plans to introduce 133 high-level overseas specialists and 303 professional and technical overseas specialists in 2011. Meanwhile, the city will also introduce about 100 entrepreneurs to the Zhongguancun Talent Zone. The 436 overseas experts will be mainly distributed in municipal universities, research institutes, state-owned enterprises, financial institutions and large-scale non-public economic organizations.

Statistics show that emerging industries have great demand for talent. The bio-pharmaceutical industry has a demand for 62 overseas experts; the electronic information industry needs 18 overseas experts; the electromechanical integration field needs 16 overseas experts and the new energy and environmental protection industry needs 9 overseas experts.

According to sources, the 133 high-level overseas experts are required to be young and high-end experts under the age of 45 years old with at least doctorate degrees and high titles. Most of them will be concentrated in emerging industries.
