Shenzhen firms chasing foreign talent

The Conference on International Exchange of Foreign Professionals, an annual event founded by the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs in 2001, might not be as well known as the Canton Fair. Yet it is China’s only large-scale human-resources fair catering specifically to foreign professional organizations, training institutions and experts.

The two-day event has been hosted in Shenzhen since 2007. This year’s event rides on the theme of technology and innovation. Its exhibition space will have a dedicated zone for the Greater Bay Area, and more than 100 seminars and forums. As part of the event, there will also be a job fair for foreigners with positions on offer from pharmaceutical, telecommunications, electronics, software, manufacturing and education sectors.

More than 350 companies, including Tencent, Huawei, Walmart, BYD, TCL, Evergrande and Ping An will be there to offer a total of 2,500 positions aimed at luring Chinese graduates who have returned from overseas.

When: April 14-15 (Sun & Mon)

Where: Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center in Futian, Shenzhen
