Talent exchange brings closer links between SZ, HK
Latest Updated by 2006-06-29 10:47:02

SINCE graduating from Nanjing University in 2001, Dr. Song Jiqiang and his wife Cai Min, a master's degree holder, have been working in Hong Kong as software development engineers in different institutes. Their relation with Hong Kong started even before graduation. They had been involved in a research project for a Hong Kong company for half a year as graduate students.

Song and Cai obtained the Shenzhen hukou last year, as they found work opportunities in Shenzhen and Hong Kong were great.

Every year, their employers apply for a Hong Kong work permit for them through the "mainland talent import scheme."

According to statistics released by the Hong Kong SAR Government, a total of 7,665 mainland professionals had worked in Hong Kong under the plan between July 2003, when it was adopted, and October 2005.

The mainland talent import plan requires that Hong Kong employers pay the same salary to local and mainland employees. At the Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute, Song has around 50 colleagues from the mainland, about 80 percent of whom are from Shenzhen. A growing number of Hong Kongers also come to Shenzhen to seek opportunities.

Statistics from the Hong Kong SAR showed that the number of Hong Kongers working on the mainland rose from 52,000 in 1988 to 244,000 in 2004. The Hong Kong Youth Association carried out a survey in 2004 on the influence of CEPA (Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement) on young people seeking jobs.

About 15.2 percent of the 500 surveyed said they would consider working in the Pearl River Delta, compared with 11.7 percent who would consider working in the Yangtze River Delta.
