China to Ease Entry Ban, More Foreigners Can Enter the Country!

Chinese government departments are working with some countries and regions to set up “express access” channels for the entry of personnel of foreign-invested enterprises amid the virus outbreak. In other words, we can see more foreign individuals come to China soon! 
Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 across the world, China on March 28 temporarily halted entry by most foreign nationals. Many of our overseas friends want to know when they are allowed to come to China. 
 
Earlier this month, China and South Korea agreed to ease border controls, with cities like Shanghai, Tianjin, and Chongqing accepting business travelers from South Korea who first pass a mandatory health screening, including a PCR test.

Here comes good news. Now we heard that the government has approached more countries and regions. 
 
According to China’s Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), Chinese government departments are working with some countries and regions to set up “express access” channels for the entry of personnel of foreign-invested enterprises amid the virus outbreak. 
 
Global companies operating in China could report any difficulties to the ministry or local commerce authorities if their foreign employees find it hard to enter the country. 
According to the Global Times, the Chinese government has discussed with the German chamber of commerce and also with the German Embassy a fast track procedure to get employees of German companies back to China

“We are planning the first possible charter flight on May 25 with around 200 people. It’s going to start from Frankfurt and go to Shanghai Pudong,” said Jens Hildebrandt, Executive Director of the German Chamber of Commerce in China. 
 
These people are urgently needed by their companies in China. They include specialists and machine maintenance technicians, as well as employees’ families – many families have already been separated for three months, he said.

“All passengers should take COVID-19 tests in Germany before they board…we will also take security measures on the flight. The Chinese side has proposed that there should be a 48-hour quarantine after arrival in China,” he said, adding that everyone must take nucleic acid and antibody tests during their quarantine period after arriving in Shanghai. 
 
Hildebrandt noted that “that’s a very good example of how orderly a fast track procedure can work … not only for Germany, maybe also for others.” 
 
“If the whole procedure can go through in a smooth way, this process could serve as a blueprint for further charter flights,” he said, noting that “I think the Chinese side is very supportive.” 
 
 
OPEN TO MORE COUNTRIES
 
In addition, China has reportedly approached Japan about reviving business travel between the two countries. 
 
Now Chinese government officials have reached out to their counterparts in Japan, suggesting China will ease its travel ban on the country if the number of new cases in Japan declines.
 
China appears to be encouraging Japan to agree to the same procedures that South Korea has approved for its business travelers. Without such an agreement, Japanese businesspeople must be quarantined for 14 days once they arrive in China.

The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security on May 11 declared that its training center plans to add 10 new jobs to the current list of formal occupations. 
 

10 New Jobs to be Officially Recognized in China

The new jobs are classified under emerging industries such as livestreaming, block chain, online learning and 3D printing. According to the ministry’s notice, these new jobs are: 
 
  • Block chain engineering technologist 

  • Community administrator

  • Internet marketer 

  • Information security tester 

  • Block chain operator

  • Nucleic acid tester 

  • Online learning service provider

With the development of e-commerce business, influencer marketing and livestreaming sales have become popular and won great economic benefits in China. 
 
That practice is emerging in a big way, with its top practitioners gaining millions of followers online. The products they sell range from daily goods such as lipsticks and cooking pans to cars and houses. 
 
On April 1, top livestreaming salesgirl Wei Ya actually sold a rocket technology company’s rocket launching service to a satellite service company within minutes

△ The rocket launch service was sold on Taobao for 40 mln yuan (about $6 mln). 

 
Other jobs too have caught people’s attention. Altogether 925,000 3D printing machines were sold in China in 2018, indicating a growing social demand for people who operate them. 
 
Not surprisingly, 3D printing operator has been added to the occupation list. Such operators will now get official recognition with clearly defined laws and supportive policies, which will help get training, social security and more jobs.

These emerging sectors are sure to prosper in the near future. Gone are the days when having a white-collar job meant being suited and sitting behind a desk. On the contrary, desk jobs are finding fewer takers now
 
However, as the job market evolves, there is a need to regulate the new professions. For example, the quality of goods being promoted during livestreaming must be put under the lens, and those buying them must be guaranteed after-sale services like those buying goods offline.

It is hoped that the new professions continue to inject new vitality into the national economy.

Family Members Shocked after Finding Nanny Killing Their Mother

Nannies are supposed to care for people in need. However, police in Liyang, Jiangsu province, have detained a nanny who allegedly killed an elderly woman in view of a surveillance camera. Her cruel act has raised a heated discussion on the Internet. 
“If it wasn’t for the video, we would be grateful for Yu,” Zhang Ying, the oldest daughter of the victim, told media on Monday. 
 
The nanny, surnamed Yu, 67, was said to have had a good relationship with the victim and her family. She and the elderly woman had lived in the same township for more than 10 years. 
 
Yu volunteered to take the nanny job on April 25. 
 
The victim, surnamed Chen, 83, was paralyzed and had diabetes. 
 

Family Members Shocked after Finding Nanny Killing Their Mother

Family members said that Yu once worked as a nurse’s aide in a local hospital and showed great patience and skill during the eight days that she cared for Chen before she allegedly committed the crime on May 2. 
 
A surveillance camera hidden inside Chen’s room captured images of Yu first covering Chen’s face with a towel and then sitting on her chest until she stopped breathing. 
The video clip above shows that Yu ignored Chen’s struggles and fanned herself with a hand fan during the whole process.

△ Yu sat on Chen’s chest to suffocate her. 
 
After confirming Chen had lost her vital signs, Yu called Chen’s son to inform him of the death and helped the family clean and dress the body as required by Chinese tradition. 
 
Zhang Aliu, one of Chen’s sons, said he was sad and flurried and never questioned the cause of death. Yu was very calm and told him not to panic after his mother’s death. 
 
“I never imagined that she was a killer,” he said. “I even thanked her repeatedly for being supportive.” 
 
However, one of Chen’s sons-in-law was suspicious about her sudden death and checked the surveillance video before reporting the crime to the police. He gave the video depicting the crime, which lasted 36 minutes, to the police. 
 
According to Zhang, Yu denied she killed his mother but turned pale when told that a surveillance camera was installed in the room. 
 
Further investigation is ongoing.

Similar crimes have occurred in past years. 
 
For example, in 2016, a woman was sentenced to death after murdering an elderly woman in Guangzhou, Guangdong province. He Tiandai, 46, confessed that she had put sleeping pills and rat poison in the victim’s soup, injected the poisonous liquid into the victim and throttled her with a rope. 
 
She also claimed to have killed seven other elderly people and had attempted but failed to kill two more between June 2013 and December 2014. 
 
According to GZ Daily, some nannies target sick or dying elderly people specifically and are called “chicken executors” by other nannies in the senior care market. 
 
After the victim dies suddenly, the nannies always demand a month’s salary from their family members no matter how many days they have worked.
