The Beijing government recently rolled out 20 new measures to attract global talents to its high-tech hub Zhongguancun, known as Beijing’s Silicon Valley.
The new package covers facilitation of exit and entry, and eased requirements for stay permits and residency permits in the capital.
Beijing established five entry-exit reception halls in Zhongguangcun, Chaoyang, Shunyi, Shijingshan and Tongzhou districts for this purpose.
Since 2015, the Beijing government has provided permanent residency permits for more than 2,100 overseas talents.
The Chinese Institute for Brain Research, Beijing, has recruited 10 principal investigators and four technical directors from global candidates, while the Beijing Academy of Quantum Information Sciences has employed 94 part-time researchers.
Additionally, Zhongguancun has provided talent agency services for global talents who may face challenges when starting their business in China. Now, the high-tech hub has employed 30 full-time staff at 15 workstations for talent agency services.
The high-tech science park will offer one-stop services for foreign talents in the future, said Zhai Lixin, director of the management committee of Zhongguancun Science Park.
