Shanghai, China’s financial hub, prevailed as expats’ fa

favorite city to work and live in for the sixth year in a row, followed by Beijing, Hefei, Hangzhou, Shenzhen, S

uzhou, Qingdao, Tianjin, Xi’an and Wuhan.

The campaign also looked at cities with the most potential to attract expats, naming X

iamen, Nanjing, Urumqi, Guangzhou, Xuzhou, Haikou, Kunming, Jinan, Dalian and Chengdu.

In recent years, China has implemented a work permit system for foreigners to come to Chi

na and a visa system for expats. This has promoted the government affairs, policies, work and living

environment of Chinese cities, allowing more expats to live and work better in China.

The survey has been conducted for nine years, starting in 2010. The A

mazing China 2018 poll took place from November to December. Results were anal

yzed from 239 signed votes from top expert panels, 2,815 votes from foreign experts, and 94,849 votes from internet users.
