Go East, young man

This is what the Holy Prophet said fifteen centuries ago!

The Peoples Daily:
It used to be that the buzzword was “Go West, young man”. But in the 21st century, it is China which attracts the young and adventurous. Erik Nilsson and Thomas Hale report.

They come for the adventure. They stay for the jobs. Foreigners coming to China for excitement and work is nothing new, but today’s imported talent, like 28-year-old American Nick Wester, is younger and higher-caliber. Wester heeded the call of former US national security advisor Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzezinski, who served under Jimmy Carter, who spoke at his university and told graduates to go East.
