Chinese Green Card

Hello All,

 

I heard from a friend that since August 2016 Guangdong province considerably lowered the requirements for getting a China green card.

 

Before the requirements were pretty steep, like for instance investing > USD 500.000 or having done special deeds for the Chinese people.. now seems that even a few years of regular residence/work permit could be enough.

Looking on the internet, I have (as usual) found conflicting information about the matter.

 

Anybody has heard anything about it? Or even better.. anybody already tried to apply?

SHENZHEN was only the fourth-happiest city in Guangdong Province despite boasting the region’s highest GDP, according to a 2010 happiness index released Monday.

World Trade Center Towers still standing...in Shenzhen China Theme Park
Windows of the World World Trade Center Towers Shenzhen

In Shenzhen, China, there is a fantasyland where the September 11 tragedy never happened. At the theme park Windows of The World exists a miniature Manhattan. The Fly over America section of the park does not reflect or educate about the tragedy, even ten years later.

The Twin Towers are still standing, misleading the millions of Chinese that visit from their far flung provinces each year. The happy facade of the theme park keeps the visitors ignorant of the tragedy that befell upon the USA. Read more »

Hiring and Firing in China: Not What You Expected

Information Source: eChinacities.com, by Paul Bacon.
Descriptions are quoted as below:

"Hiring and firing has always been very different here in China compared to back in the west. Countries like the US and UK have long established labour regulations. In China, this is not the case. Until the implementation of new legislation at the start of 2008, the labour market here was virtually lawless and totally unpredictable. However, even with the new laws in effect, hiring and firing can still be a potential minefield. This is especially true for westerners working for smaller operations that lack large legal and HR teams, and for those starting or operating their own business. Read more »

China halves import tax on electrical goods

China Daily has an article named "China halves import tax on electrical goods" by Yan Weijue.
Descriptions are quoted as below:

"China lowered the import tax on electrical products from 20 to 10 percent starting from January 27, 2011, the State Council Tariffs Commission announced on Thursday, Beijing News reported.

Products with reduced import duties include computers and cameras, which means the tax on iPad imports drops from 1000 yuan ($152) to up to 500 yuan ($76).

But video cameras are not included in this category, staying at the 20 percent level.

China's current import duty covers tariff, value added tax and consumption tax.

The commission gave no reason for the import tax revision and said the move has been approved by the State Council." Read more »
