Chinese Migrant Workers in Transition – Part I

From Economic Observer Online:

Cities in the Pearl Delta region were among the first to open-up as China began to transition from a planned to a market economy 30 years ago. In recent years, several municipal governments in the region have been promoting yet another transition — away from low-end, labor-intensive industries and replace them with high-end production and services.

To support that process, the region is looking for ways to reorganise its demographics in order to develop higher quality human resources.

This special focus looks at how the imminent transition would impact Chinese , who formed a significant portion of the region’s population. The EO uses case studies in cities like Dongguan and Guangzhou as part I of the focus series.

Part II of the focus features an interview with population management researcher Gao Huayou, who gives insights into a new resident pass system implemented in Dongguan on August 1.
