Here are some English translations of the draft regulation:



Specifically this:

"Article 22: (Management of part-time employment)

Foreign teachers can only enter into one contract with one education institution during one term of employment to obtain a record-filing number.

Upon consent of the employing institution, foreign teachers may take on reasonable part-time work at other education institutions. Foreign teacher that takes on part-time jobs should sign a three-party contract between the teacher, the employing institution and institution for the part-time job. The contract should specify responsibility of each party. The employing institution should not collect any fees from the institution for the part-time job. The three-party contract should be submitted to the responsible education department to be retained on file, and the responsible education department should provide the name list to exit and entry administration agency of the public security organ to be retained on file. The accumulative teaching hours of the foreign teacher at the part-time job should not exceed the hours spent teaching at the employing institution. "

To continue on my comment above (suggesting that Chinese authorities may be "forced" to relax employment rules for foreigners already here), here is something related that I recently stumbled upon:


I couldn't open or find the sources referred to in that article, specifically the supposed statement or draft measures from China's Ministry of Education. If anyone has better luck, follow up would be great.

Forums > Living in Kunming > China Unicom english call center number?

For me (and others in same situation) biggest issue with China Mobile is that in my foreign bought mobile phone their service cannot give 4G, so basically no internet.

Therefore China Unicom is the only option for me, other than lugging around a second device with China Mobile card and using it as portable hotspot. This I anyway have to do in places where China Unicom does not have coverage.


No results found.


CoVid experiences possibly affecting this could could of course come from many perspectives.

For example, those who are or have been in urban lock-down, may appreciate the prospect of going out once it is over - opportunities which are perhaps different in Kunming/Yunnan, than somewhere else.

If the survey took place during or after lock-downs in China, people will acknowledge this and it would show in results more strongly than perhaps otherwise. Appreciating what the city or region can offer beside 12h work days and big bucks.

"Survey of Economic Life in China"

If this "economic" is to be taken as in affordability, then at least for me it is a major point.

If I speculate this from local perspective, last I checked the local average salary was below the monthly automatic 5000 RMB tax deduction, so average Kunming resident gets by without paying any income tax - in many other country I would probably feel satisfied if I see the city and society develop even without having to contribute to it myself by other means than my own consumption.

There isn't that much industry here, but the benefits of developing society keep trickling in anyway, and this curve (or imbalance or whatever you'd call it) will ultimately show in this kind of surveys, positively.

It is perhaps same in some more remote places, where some farmers can make a small fortune with modern technology to help them.

Also curious about when this survey was conducted - would CoVid experiences weigh in it, and how?

"Dogs raised outside the key management areas may not be brought in."

Curious how this regulation deals with people (foreigners or Chinese) who may want to move in Kunming and bring their pet dogs with...?

I'm curious whether the separate website for Lijiang means less Lijiang-specific content appearing on GoKunming. For me personally it would be double to effort to navigate two websites, which may be why I will not frequent on the Lijiang site.

So basically will the information on the two sites be mirrored so that those who only read GoKunming, may catch all/most of the content about Lijiang as well?

"support the website by making an account, asking questions in the forum, leaving reviews and using the classifieds section to find a job, sell your stuff or rent an apartment."

This (or rather what is not included in that list of to-dos) sums the criticism that I personally have toward the whole ordeal, and how GoKunming (out of no choice I understand) had to respond to it with rest of the nation.
Ask questions and increase revenue, but feel free to avoid discussing and, heaven forbid, debating anything.
