China has about 1 million students studying outside of China. Many have expressed that they will think twice about whether to go back to China after graduation. One major reason is the communist regime’s three-year enforcement of the “Zero-COVID” policy that they understand is not for the interest of the people but for politics. Quite a number of these Chinese students had gathered in the campus or in front of Chinese Embassy or Consulate to appeal or support their fellow people in China. (Editor’s Note: The Chinese students studying abroad used to be a group loyal to Beijing in the past, but the spread of COVID has changed many of them).
Another reason for their not wanting to return is the dismal economic situation in China.
