(People's Daily Online)    11:21, January 18, 2018

The Ministry of Public Security and the Shanghai Municipal People’s Government have rolled out a plan to woo more overseas high-end talents to work in Shanghai, reported on Jan 17.

More convenience to apply for permanent Shanghai residency will be provided for core foreign members at top research institutions in Shanghai, said Lou Pengying, deputy director of the Entry and Exit Department under the Public Security Bureau of Shanghai.

Foreign talents will be encouraged to make innovations and start businesses in Shanghai, breaking the restriction that they can work for only one company at a time.

Meanwhile, excellent foreign graduates will be entitled to apply for two-year residency and those who have worked for three consecutive years and satisfy certain qualifications can apply for permanent residency in Shanghai.

Gao Ziping with the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences pointed out that in addition to just inviting individuals, more talent groups are being targeted, which is a big breakthrough.

Lou disclosed that Shanghai will plan the country’s first exit and entry affairs center, in order to help foreign talents live and work in Shanghai.
