How an expat thinks about China in Taizhou

E-mail Print

(Editor's comment: David Wilson, an expat living in Taizhou, the so-called Chinese Medical City, Jiangsu, has his story shared with  FutureofUSChinaTrade.com)

The network (FutureofUSChinaTrade.com) is always looking to balance two perspectives: one is the “high-level” policy perspective on trade – the kind the net gets from policymakers in Washington D.C. and Beijing and, often, from academics.  The second is the “on-the-ground” perspective the net gets from business people who are operating within, and between, the U.S. and China.

Halloween arrives! but we are in China now, Will miss it?  Chinese people call Western Halloween as Wan Shen Jie or Ghost Festival. You do not get a real Halloween there like what we have here in Europe, the US or Canada. But nowadays, as the door opens, market opens and China looks for ways to expand their economy, you are seeing Halloween getting bigger and bigger, but its still nowhere as big as the Western.

E-mail Print

Many expatriates have met a problem for banking activities when they are in China. We are going to help and try to publish some articles for the issue.

Opening a bank account in China as a foreigner is not as difficult a process as you might first assume. There are various benefits for an expat should they choose to open a bank account at a Chinese bank. As an expat, having an account at a Chinese bank can allow for cheaper banking as well as the ability to purchase certain goods and services online that cannot be purchased with foreign debit and credit cards. If you decide to open an account as an expat at a Chinese bank I believe that you should make sure to do the proper prep work, bring the proper documentation, and make sure you sign up to receive a Union Pay Card. Also, it is important to be aware of several implications to having a bank account in a country like China.
