The Shanghai Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau launched a series of activities on Aug 14 designed to attract international students to work and start businesses in the city.

More than 800 students from well-known universities attended a job fair which included more than 60 employers, including state-owned enterprises, multinational corporations and key scientific research institutions in Shanghai.

There were more than 1,000 jobs offered for students from major Shanghai universities and overseas universities such as University of Cambridge, Columbia University and Stanford University, mainly in the areas of finance, life sciences and management.

The event has attracted more than 5,000 overseas students over the past 11 years, a large proportion of which chose to stay in Shanghai.

According to the bureau, more than 160,000 students from overseas have worked or started a business in Shanghai, and more than 5,200 companies have been set up by overseas students, with a registered capital of more than $800 million. A total of 3,704 outstanding overseas students have been selected for the "Shanghai Pujiang Talent Program".

The overseas students have brought a unique international perspective to Shanghai and have played a unique and irreplaceable role in promoting innovation and high-quality development in the city.

On the same day as the fair, the city also launched the Shanghai Overseas Talent Website, which will mainly be used for providing policy and other information to meet the needs of overseas talents needs and will serve as a platform to connect them with employers.

Moving forward, Shanghai will take more measures to attract overseas high-caliber personnel in order to expand its opening up, aiming to build the city into a center for global talents, according to the bureau.
