Russia ranks third in the supply of labor in China

According to the HSBC 2013 Expat Explorer Survey's annual survey, foreigners, as before, consider China to be the best place to work and live, despite the slowdown in economic growth in the country and environmental problems. Analysts called the main advantage of China is the relatively high level of wages compared to low living expenses.

This advantage of the Celestial Empire is actively used by the Russians, who, according to the Office of Tourism Affairs of China for 2013, constitute 8,4% (269 000 people) of the total foreign citizens who came to work in China (3 195 000). Russia ranks third in labor supply to the PRC after the Philippines (622 700 people) and South Korea (386 000). True, in 2012, the number of Russians who came to work in the People's Republic of China was 9,7% of the total number of foreigners, and they were the second largest after Koreans.

Nevertheless, recently the working conditions of Russians in China began to change. Experts note the complication of the procedure for obtaining a work visa. Also, Chinese employees who have been educated abroad and returned to work at home are often given preference for work. Employers dismiss employees who do not speak Chinese and do not have a specialized education or sufficient experience to switch to another job.

In general, the demand for foreigners in the Chinese labor market still does not exceed supply. According to a study by the Russian branch of HeadHunter, in 2004, the company offered only one vacancy to work in China, and 2013 posted job advertisements on 362 more than a year ago.

But today in China, other specialties are in demand. Now it's easier to find work in the manufacturing, consulting or trade. Professionals-engineers working in industrial companies are well earned and steadily employed. Expat Explorer Survey estimates the annual salary of such professions in China at $ 74 thousand dollars. However, according to other sources, the salaries of Russians in the Middle Kingdom rarely exceed $ 3000 per month.
