Vacation Work's new title Live & Work in China is the definitive guide for everyone wishing to join the expats in these territories and work in this rapidly-changing part of the world. It provides essential background on Chinese history, manners and culture, and gives essential information on the way of life there along with invaluable information on finding accommodations, getting around, and more. The book also gives job seekers all the information needed to find a job, including a directory of major employers and a regional employment guide that explains where the opportunities are best.
The book also covers the possibilities for living and working in Hong Kong. Since its restoration to China in 1997, Hong Kong has continued as a leading commercial and manufacturing center in Asia. Although many of the jobs once done by westerners are now done by local people, there is still a need for westerners with specific skills to offer, particularly in the areas of financial services, consultancy, IT, and telecommunications.
It is common knowledge that China is the world's most populous country, but less widely recognized is the strength of its fast-developing economy; in terms of GDP it is currently in the top six countries in the world. Since the late 1970s, China has employed an increasing number of foreigners to aid its modernization program. Most of these have been in academic institutions, but recently they have been employed in other fields too, for example in the areas of trade and joint ventures; with some 450 million people currently learning English there opportunities for English teachers are particularly plentiful. It was recently estimated that some 600,000 foreigners are living and working in the country.
