Central authority fails to face up to surge in emigration

China EmigrationThe surge of emigration was not something that was talked about in China until yesterday. The news broke when CCTV made special footage on emigration, which indicates the seriousness of the issue.

Another graver piece of news is that even CCTV dared not persuade rich people not to emigrate, but only reminded them that they should not emigrate through an illegal immigration agency. From that we can see how justified it is to emigrate.

People are only given the advice not to emigrate through an illegal agency

In CCTV’s news program last week, it played a special footage, more than 10 minutes long, that gave an example of an investment immigrant to the US who found that he had been deceived when he arrived in the United States.

To be frank, even if one has obtained a conditional green card, one is still not sure whether one can obtain a permanent green card two years later. Moreover, there is risk with respect to the return of the investment. The footage tells quite a good story, but avoids touching the reason of emigration.

A recent Japanese survey claims that of the Chinese who have assets worth 10 million yuan of Renminbi, 60% have already emigrated or are considering emigration. This is certainly an exaggeration because a moderately good housing unit is worth more than 10 million yuan now.

Do 60% of their owners want to emigrate? The above survey is unbelievable, but the accurate percentage is very hard to get. According to the figure of investment immigrants made public by the United States, 70% of such immigrants have come from China. The reasons of immigration for those people are worth studying.

Businessmen depart to avoid anti-corruption risk

The major reason for owners of small and medium-sized enterprises emigrating is the worsening of the business environment. Their enterprises have developed to the stage that needs to be upgraded into a new phase of development, but would remain stagnant if no additional funds, technology or management expertise is available. The intensified monopoly of state-owned enterprises leaves less room for the development of small and medium-sized enterprises.

Another reason is the popular anti-corruption campaign. Those enterprise owners have committed more or less bribery. If the officials they have given bribes to are in trouble, they will be involved too. They leave China to flee the risk.

The heartless ones among them even give bribes to bank managers to get loans by abnormal means before their departure and leave China with the borrowed money.

Others who have strong sense of family emigrate to give their children better education opportunities.

The central authority must pay attention as confidence in the country is affected

Emigrants take away not only funds but also management expertise. In addition, it gives rise the tendency of lacking faith in the country’s future. The central authority should not be indifferent to that.

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.

  1. Reblogged this on CHINDIA ALERT: You'll be living in their world, very soon and commented:
    Given that China has 1.3 billion people and there are over 1 million millionaires – according to Huran survey, does it matter that some successful people are emigrating? All it will do is open the way for the ‘next level’ to step up and be successful too.
