[Foreign media broke the news] It's a big deal! China is discussing the implementation of dual citizenship
The Voice of Russia reported: China is currently investigating dual nationals!
But because of the implementation of this measure, some outstanding Chinese cadres who are educated overseas have been troubled. When faced with choices, some of them chose to refuse their own nationality and obtain foreign passports.
The main reason for officially not allowing dual citizenship is against corruption. According to a report from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, a total of 1990 officials fled from the beginning of 2011 to the end of 18000, with a total of 8000 billion yuan involved. According to statistics from the Ministry of National Security of China, China has investigated and punished 500 officials for corruption and bribery last year.
At the same time, there are other people who have moved abroad. Since 2010, Chinese students have become the main force of foreign students in the United States. 14 Chinese students went to the United States to study. According to Wang Huiyao, director of the China and Globalization Think Tank, since 1978, the total number of Chinese students sent abroad has exceeded 200 million, and only one-third of them have chosen to return to their country for development.
As the immigration experts have said, the outflow of such a large number of elite talents has made China rarely employ foreign cadres. By the end of 2012, China had only nearly 25 regular foreign experts working in China. In megacities like Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, the number of foreign employees does not even reach 0.5% of the city's total population. In contrast, in cities such as New York, Paris and London, the number of foreign employees can reach 20%-30% of the total population.
In 2004, after China realized the local "brain drain" situation, it began to take measures to attract foreign entrepreneurs to participate in various projects in China. These entrepreneurs also included some ethnic Chinese with other nationalities. But not all measures have worked for investors. Under normal circumstances, investors can only obtain China's "green card" after investing no less than US$50 in the economy of underdeveloped areas in western China, or investing US$100 million in projects in central China. And such a huge number is an astronomical number for many Chinese expats who want to gain a foothold in their homeland.
The act of having dual nationality exists in nearly 90 countries in the world. This includes not only developed countries like the United States and Western Europe, but also developing countries like North Korea, Vietnam, the Philippines, Brazil and Mexico. Experts believe that under these conditions, it is too early to implement a dual nationality system in China. But the authorities canOverseas Chinese implement ID card policy(Just as India has previously implemented a policy for citizens who previously held Indian nationality). With this certificate, ethnic Chinese can return to China without any obstacles and have the same rights as ordinary Chinese citizens except for the right to vote without obtaining a visa.Relevant Chinese experts believe that this will enable China to regain overseas Chinese elites without material losses.
