THE CHINA JOB MARKET
Overseas mergers and acquisitions by Chinese companies are currently “the highlight of the global M&A market”. The biggest buyers are state-owned enterprises or companies run by China’s government, such as Haier, Midea and HNA Group. Now more other large scale domestic companies are going out and take an active part in international competition by overseas mergers and acquisitions, such as Ctrip, Tencent and Wanda Group. Following are some of the examples:
To improve the internal organizational communication, buyer companies are in need of Chinese talents with international educational or working background. As a result, they prefer Chinese returnees. Take GEELY as an example, after buying VOLVO, its overseas recruiting landed in Sweden this year. A trainee program is designed to attract more overseas talents to join in the new big international business group.
