China’s New Rich Class and Intellectual Elites Emigrate Overseas

Xinhua reprinted an article from on June 4, 2010 on the emigration of China’s new rich class and intellectual elites to the United States, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and some small countries in Central America. 

“In 2009, a total of 25,000 Chinese emigrated to Canada and 65,000 Chinese emigrated to the U.S.; in 2008, about 16,000 Chinese emigrated to Australia.”

“What attract the Chinese immigrants to go abroad are the quality education, clean environment, safe food, standardized laws and the symbol of a status.”
