Anhui issued its first work permit for a Korean expert employed by University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) on November 11, marking the beginning of the new stage of foreigner employment management in Anhui.

The country planned to combine two foreigner work permits, one for “foreign employees” and another for “foreign experts”, into one in December, 2015. As one of the ten provinces or municipal cities carrying out the trial program, Anhui initiates the work across the province this month.

It’s learned that the unification of the foreigner work permits aims to streamline the process and improve efficiency to attract more skilled foreign talent.
