China to create more favorable conditions for attracting overseas talent


09:44, August 14, 2011

BEIJING, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) has promised to create more favorable conditions for overseas Chinese professionals who are willing to return to China.

"China's development is creating more opportunities for talented people to display their capabilities. We hope that more overseas Chinese will return home to start their careers or continue their scientific research here," said Li Yuanchao, head of the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee.

The state will provide support and assistance in terms of research project applications, employment and funding for talented individuals who come back from abroad, Li said.

The government will also create more favorable conditions and environments for academics and businessmen to conduct research and start related ventures, he added.

Li made the remarks during a Friday meeting with Xiaoliang Sunney Xie, a member of the United States National Academy of Sciences (NAS).

Born in China, Xie is a professor at Harvard University's Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology. He has been making active efforts to promote cooperation and exchanges in relevant fields between China and the U.S..

On Saturday, a special job fair for overseas Chinese talents attracted nearly one thousand people in Beijing.

The event included more than 800 positions in communication and media, education and scientific research, consultation, healthcare, finance and investment and information services, among other industries.

According to the Beijing-based Western Returned Scholars Association, one of the event's organizers, a large number of these positions are medium and senior-level managers and scientific researchers.
