Scuttlebutt has it that there are interesting opportunities opening up in China for self-employed individuals, eg, attorneys, chartered accountants, management consultants, etc.
Not for the internal Chinese market but catering to the ex-pat and international trade market between China and Africa.
Just have to learn Mandarin at one of the pressure-cooker lanaguage schools ...
I’d rather live in DRC than China :roll:

From an ex-colleague who gave us same insight after working there for 3 months on a sort of exchange program between Standard Bank and another big bank of China (ICBC) , it is great working and living there. Except for the air pollution.
Lots of South Africans living there.

Ja, the air in the big cities — and there are plenty of them — is poisonous. I spent 10 days at a coal mine in the Gobi desert, photographing steam engines, and that was bad enough, but the air in Beijing was simply unbreathable.

Then add the Big Brother effect. No, not for me ...

South Africans in Spain
Although there are quite a few years since Golden Visa has been introduced as an easy way to enter many European countries, and it is being widely advertised, only a couple of thousand of people went this route when trying to immigrate to Spain. To be exact, the number stands at more or less 3.000 individuals. And over 70% of them, according to the statistics are Chinese or Russian businessmen. But, there are so many more foreigners living in Spain. And more and more of them are coming to live here every day. From all parts of the world, US, Australia, Canada, Latin America, from the countries of Eastern Europe, to name just a few. How do they manage to do this, without wanting to invest 500.000+ Euros? The answer is – Non-lucrative visa. And many South Africans in Spain have gone this way.

There is a European regulation that allows you to come to a country and live freely in it, as long as you don’t cost its taxpayers any money. As long as you are self-sufficient. Different countries in Europe have different ways to calculate how much is “enough” for them to let you in, and Spain is one of the countries with the lowest threshold, because, the salaries and the cost of living here are also one of the lowest on the continent.
