From 1978 to 2003, a total number of 700,200 Chinese students and scholars studied in 108 countries and regions all over the world, covering almost all disciplines. With encouragement of government policy, more young people are leaving China to study abroad.
These Haigui (nickname for the Chinese students and scholars returned from overseas) brought back the advanced technology and management that China needed badly in its economic take-off and in the meantime, they succeeded in their career development in China. "Study abroad" spurred economic development, but at the same time also brought in some other problems such as the Western ideas and culture flooded into China.
There are more and more Chinese students studying abroad now. Some of them are still studying in foreign countries, some have returned to China after studying abroad, while still others have stayed in foreign countries after competing their studies.
In the past, U. S. attracted a large portion of the total number of Chinese students studying abroad. But statistics show that Chinese students have increased drastically in countries like Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Singapore, Germany and France in recent years. Statistics show that young people studying abroad under 22 have increased at an annual rate of 40 percent over the past three years.
