Expats living and working in China are being asked to take part in a magazine survey to determine the most attractive Chinese city.

Organiser International Talent Magazine is asking the country’s significant proportion of foreigners to vote via ‘wetalent’, the publication’s WeChat account, with 42 cities selected as candidates for the top spot. The cites are listed by population numbers, with seven home to over 10,million people, nine with between five and 10 million and 18 with between three and five million residents. Also listed are nine provincial capital cities and cities holding the Chinese government’s State Independent planning status.

The vote itself will be split into two sections, with 1,260 expatriates and 30 experts from each nominated city voting for their favourites, and the voting teams will include a number of recipients of the China Friendship Award as well as top talent professionals with high social standing and influence. The cities themselves will be divided into two sections – the most attractive and those with the greatest potential as regards growth and economic status. Chosen criteria will range between local culture, history, ease of living and similar attractions to administrative services and favourable local policies for foreign residents.

The survey will run between now and the end of December, and is the first annual poll to exclusively target China’s fast-growing expatriate community. The idea first surfaced in 2010, with Shenzhen ranking sixth in the final listings and Shanghai taking top place due to its multicultural environment and international atmosphere. Beijing came in at second place, mainly due to its educational provisions and excellent healthcare options.
