In 2008, as the financial crisis in US led to layoff waves, it brought an opportunity for China to introduce overseas high-level personnel. The Central Committee and the Provincial Party Committee paid high attention to it, so they specially formulated relevant policies and measures. Under the high premium of Municipal Committee and Municipal Government, Shaoing started to introduce high-level personnel from overseas. At present, the overall quality of overseas high-level talents in Shaoxing is good, but compared with Shaoxing’s demand on economy and social development, it is relatively low in quantity. Meanwhile, as regards to the aspects in regional distribution and industry structure, it is still contradicted with Shaoxing’s economic development and industrial distribution. According to the journalists, among the five key industries and new industries in Shaoxing, overseas high-level talents is not distributed widely. It is only 19.82％ and 3.23％ respectively.
When determining the targets, focuses, conditions, processes of introducing overseas talents in “Shaoxing 330 overseas elites Plan”, the government have fully took the development strategy of economy, industry characteristics, work infrastructure and social environment into consideration.
