Facing a stagnant economic situation overseas, more Chinese students are returning home after studying overseas, a trend that looks likely to continue in coming years, a report released this week says.
The report on the situation in 2013, conducted by the Chinese international education service provider EIC, said 22 percent of returned overseas Chinese students thought they would have better prospects finding a good job in their "home country".
The survey interviewed more than 9,100 respondents by questionnaire over five months. More than 5,800 had been overseas students.
"China's high-speed economic growth in past years has motivated overseas students to come back and to look for job opportunities," said Liu Yuan, general manager of EIC's Shanghai branch. "At the same time, it demonstrates the difficulty overseas Chinese students have in finding jobs in other countries."
About half of the former overseas Chinese students polled cited the uncertain economic situation as the biggest obstacle to finding employment overseas.
"Given the uncertain economic situation and crummy job market, it's really hard to find a suitable job in the UK," said Lin Nan, who graduated from Imperial College London and returned to China last year.
"During that time I considered it seriously and decided to seek job opportunities in my home country," said Lin, who now works for a financial company in Shanghai.

I agree 100%.
