number of migrant workers abroad
“Daily Telegraph” commented that China began to more and more overseas investment. United Nations Conference on Trade and offered, “World Investment Report 2011″ shows that in 2010, China’s foreign direct investment totaled $ 68 billion, this figure is three times three years ago.
China’s workers are also to go abroad.布拉提加姆 research data show that in 2010, with 847,000 Chinese labor workers to work abroad, of which nearly 23 million people work in Africa.
United States, “New York Times” said that the incident highlights China to the world’s most turbulent countries to send more workers to the risks. Over the past decade, China to sub-Saharan Africa and other developing countries sending large numbers of workers in these areas of the West’s reluctance to get involved the construction of highways, airports, bridges, dams and other large-scale projects, making these areas major infrastructure project undertaker. Chinese state-owned enterprises in which sent most of the work, rather than train local workers, this approach can sometimes be paid off faster, but it can also result in alienation with the locals to set Chinese workers at risk.
last year’s events have shown that the intensity of China’s overseas investment is increasing, in some past difficulties in attracting foreign investment countries and regions, China’s presence was strengthened.

“Global Times” commented that every major country experienced the rise of “going out” stage. Today, China’s “going out”, is to divide up the market, someone else has, look for “neglected corner”, “winnowed out” their own development.
Europe and the United States when the “New World” of development, the state apparatus as the main body, the army played an important role. The Chinese move out carefully, mostly companies lead the charge, the Chinese workers and traders stood in the forefront. Despite this, many of them state-owned enterprises in China, but the foreign powers in modern times to open up, enterprises and workers from the Chinese do not like this is so important.
China to open up without walking in the front-line workers and traders, but the state’s power is not in the most geographically dispersed to protect each of them. China and the turmoil in the outside area behind the nationals, often large in most countries. Provide protection to each of them is the fragmentation of China’s national security super-topic. Everyone around the world, Chinese citizens in distress, are likely to touch the entire country. And now many people outside China are not self-protection standards, and the Chinese Embassy or Chinese organizations do not contact the individual company risk management than the benefits and safety has not been carefully assessed.
countries to invest resources to protect the safety of foreign citizens in the rapid increase in foreign investment in the safety of citizens and companies must increase faster. In addition to improving the Chinese government embassies and consulates outside the emergency response mechanism should be based on the actual situation of high-risk areas, to establish an effective mobilization of Chinese citizens and Chinese companies to increase investment in security mechanisms.
