Sepentza, he is on his way out. The other guy cmilk has already left back to the US. Their mate prozzie also moved to Taiwan.
My mate from NZ who was going to make a a career in China is leaving as well. Had enough but mostly because they are replacing foreigners with cheaper workers and benefits are reducing. We know this old story from Taiwan. His office started with five foreigners and now he’s the only one left for a company that employs thousands there. Also sick of living there in rough environment (Beijing bring polluted and not very nice place to live and people are rough)
Same with the place I work. There are just a couple of huaqiao based out of our China offices even though it’s by far our biggest operation in Asia. People just don’t want to move there and the company won’t pay much extras anyway. Cheaper and easier to hire manland Chinese. The last Taiwanese that moved were years ago.
Seems to be that folks are flocking back to HK, back to West, South East Asia …Certainly a few will wash up here.
It depends on industry a bit of course…It seems ESL is still booming, probably some marketing and service stuff too.
