More than 900,000 foreigners were employed on the Chinese mainland in 2016 while there were fewer than 10,000 foreign experts working in China in the 1980s, said Zhang Jianguo, head of the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs told at the 15th Conference on International Exchange of Professionals held in Shenzhen on Apr 16.

Foreign experts are important resources to help China to achieve economic and social prosperity and they work as the indispensable force to drive China’s innovation, said Zhang.

Foreign experts should be offered opportunities in sectors that have specific demand for them, he said, calling for measures to prevent “brain waste.” Meanwhile, unskilled foreign workers demanding high wages should be denied.
