Art imitates life;

With binoculars trained on revising the immigration laws in Obama’s next four years, the new focus is on China. Shanghai Calling is an interesting U.S.-Chinese co-production filled with beautiful locations and colorful characters that reverses the trend. This time, the ocean is still crowded with immigrants heading for a foreign country seeking more pay, better jobs and an improved quality of life. But now the immigrants are Americans, and their destination is China.

Chinese Immigration Fever

Created: 2012-04-25 14:28 EST

According to the latest research of the Gallup Poll, over 22 million Mainland Chinese want to immigrate to the United States, far more than any other ethnicity in the world. Analysts believe the actual number even surpasses 22 million. But due to various limitations, many are not able.

One of the many reasons Chinese mainlanders want to leave China is a lack of a sense of security living under the current rule by the Chinese Communist Party.

A citizen from the Guangdong province, Mr. Tang, also wants to immigrate as well, mainly because of China’s one party dictatorship and rampant corruption.

[Mr. Tang, Citizen of Guangdong]:

“China is a dictatorship. People don’t have a sense of security. One day a piece of property belongs to you, but tomorrow it’s his, not yours anymore. Local authorities take farmers’ land and sell them to developers. Farmers don’t have any land, and they don’t feel a sense of security. Just in Guangdong alone, the suicide rate is over 20,000 per year.”

Rights activist Liu Feiyue also believes Mainlanders who want to immigrate to the U.S. or other countries could possibly surpass 20 million. One of the main reasons, he says, is that human rights are not respected and laws are not enforced.


[Liu Feiyue, Rights Activist]:

“If so many citizens of a country are racing to leave, to go to other countries, this reveals that problems have surfaced in the country. It shows that due to various reasons nobody wants to stay there, and they are unable to stay. A society without freedom, justice, of course, this society has lost its cohesiveness.”

Another survey conducted jointly by China Merchants Bank and Bain & Company show that 60% of China’s middle class people with more than 10 million RMB worth of investment assets have already finished immigration procedures or are considering this process.

According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, in 2011 a total of 2969 Chinese citizens applied for EB-5 immigrant investor visas, a 10 fold increase compared to 2007, making up a total of 75% of all EB-5 applicants.

Just remember this fact about China: Chinese have been immigrating overseas for over 1,000 years, yet overseas Chinese today are just 3 % of Chinese population on earth.

That is 500,000 foreigners in China compared to how many Chinese in the North America, EU, Russia, Africa and Latin America? I'll tell you 50,000,000 not counting Asian countries.

That's 50 million, including Asian countries, especially SE Asia, after 1,000 years of immigration.

There are over 4 million people from overseas living in mainland China after PRC opened up 30 plus years ago.

Do the math ratios.

The Chinese in Norway gain distinction

Chinese people make up a rather small part of Norway's immigrant population, but they distinguish themselves through a high level of education and low unemployment. Zhang Xiuhua might very well be the foremost representative for this group; she recently received the "Top 10" award, an annual distinction awarded to immigrants who hold leading positions in Norway.

Zhang Xiuhua is Senior Advisor in The Research Council of Norway, and president of the organisation Chinese Professionals in Norway (CPN). She has lived in Norway for twelve years.

- Norway is an open society with a pleasant and safe working environment, and there is room and opportunity for everybody, including immigrants, says Zhang, who is active in promoting cooperation between Norway and China, as well as between Chinese communities across borders.

- I am proud of beeing Chinese in Norway since it gives me the opportunity to influence both countries. Besides, it is certainly an honor to receive the "Top 10" award, and I hope it can serve as an inspiration to other Chinese immigrants.

Since its establisment in 2003, CPN has come to play an important role as an arena of communication and integration. Of the 340 members, 25 percent have obtained a Ph.D and 70 percent hold a master's degree, and their stated goal is to create an environment where members can help each other integrate in Norwegian society.

- CPN is an important bridge between Norway and China, and is working actively to promote mutual understanding between Norwegian and Chinese culture, says Zhang.

A total of around 5000 Chinese people live in Norway. Most of them are either students or some kind of specialists, and in addition to a low unemployment rate in general, another feature that characterises Chines immigrants is that women are almost as often employed as men. In this respect Zhang Xiuhua is certainly an important role model.

"Top 10" is awarded every year by Leadership Foundation, a combinded consultant company and thinktank who has specialized in diversity and leadership.

Norway tries to regain lost ground in China

03 January, 2013 - Aside from moving to the commercial capital of Shanghai in January, Norway Seafood Council (NSC)’s China representative Sigmund Bjorgo is planning to up the ante in marketing terms in 2013.

Bjorgo is expecting sales in China will be up 15 percent in 2012 compared to 2010 figures — he doesn’t compare with 2011, given how sales tanked due to newly stringent veterinary inspections faced by Norwegian salmon from February 2011. While 15 percent would be respectable in most industries, it pales next to the 70 percent growth that the council had projected for China before sales slumped in the midst of Chinese official displeasure at the awarding of the 2010 Nobel peace prize to a Chinese dissident writer. Actual salmon consumption in China did in fact grow 70 percent a year over the 2010-2012 period, Bjorgo believes.

The new marketing push may be a response to continued trouble in China for exporters from Norway, which is still getting the diplomatic cold shoulder from China since the award of the Nobel peace prize. Aside from moving to Shanghai (which he sees as more of a trend-setting and corporate hub than Beijing) Bjorgo this year appointed a new public-relations agency to handle both the media and in-store marketing campaigns in China for the NSC.“We want to increase the distribution of our logo and heritage … my big dream is that consumers in China will never again buy only salmon sashimi, rather they will buy Norwegian salmon sashimi.”

Two years ago, Norway had a 90 percent market share in China’s fresh salmon sales and has seen that shrink. Bjorgo points to a huge investment by Norway in growing salmon consumption and its own market share, some of which it has now lost to Scotland and the Faroe Islands, as well as (to a lesser extent) frozen Chilean Atlantic salmon product. Chilean product has “come back strongly,” he says.

Bjorgo expects Chinese salmon consumption to grow 30 percent year on year in 2013.“We hope Norway will get its share. And I hope Norway takes back its share … I’m hopeful but not confident.” Long term, the outlook is perhaps more positive: the NSC expects that China will become the world’s leading market for Norwegian salmon and will continue to grow at current rates until 2020. The biggest market for Norwegian salmon currently is Russia — demand which Bjorgo believes is explained by modernization and increased geographical reach of the country’s retail sector.

Clearly working hard to understand the Chinese market, this summer Bjorgo hired researchers to survey and understand China’s growing Japanese restaurant sector: they talked to 175 managers and visited or called 2,600 restaurants — many of them parts of chains like Matsuko and Golden Jaguar.

Bjorgo says the biggest surprise from the survey for him was the sheer number of Japanese-style restaurants in China, from the cheaper Tang Katse Ramen chain (“they don’t so much serve sashimi so are not of interest to us”) to the more expensive sashimi establishments like Golden Jaguar. The research also showed how mainland China remains predominantly a raw salmon market — very little cooked or smoked product is consumed.“This is very unique, compared to Japan or Europe where a large percentage of cooked product is consumed.”

Likewise, much of China’s salmon consumption happens in high-end sashimi restaurants with much less evidence of sushi, which is seen as a cheaper, more filling product.“Five years from now when sashimi is more established then sushi is likely to follow.”

Attempting to capture the home market, Norwegian promotional efforts in 2013 will also include recipes posted on NSC’s Chinese language micro-blog service, as well as cooking demonstrations and tastings at the point of sale.“We focus on weekends, because that’s when most hypermarket sales happen, it’s when people want to treat themselves.”

Because you are a very racist againsst indians, whites, and other asians. You have called philipinos, indians, and Japanese monkeys more then ten times since I took over ths profile from my gf, you also called jewish people filth.

You. I can understand red necks and muslims not liking jewish people. But you live in another country and hate it while most jews even though they are hated more then blacks usually love the country they were born in.

Most nordic people are very angolo saxon in the way we deal with foreigners, very inclusive.
