Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao pleged on Thursday to take more measures to promote employment and boost exports which plunged due to anemic external demand.

Last year, early in 2008, China changed the " F " class business visa conditions.

CHINA - the first thing she should do right now

is reverse the policy on " F " Visa holders

while there are not many foreigners left

there are some

and in view of the financial crisis

the loss of China business

the damage to the middle class ( done my themselves )

China should revert to the old " F" visa policy

as a matter of URGENCY

as I say, there are not many foreigners left to do bvusiness in China

( or anywhere lese for that matter )

but better to grab what is left while China can

I urge the  reversal back to the original policy

before the change in early 2008

Late in December of 2008, the " F " visa conditions for Americans

was reversed to the original early 2008 conditions

then early in January 2009, for the English business people

all other passport holders are

" RESTRICTED "

to 1 or 2 entries, limited to 30 days per entry.

This does not work, as business people need to cross many borders

and go here and there and backwards and forwards in and out of China

for everything from other business meetings to QC verifications

the original conditions for an " F " class visa were most suitable

MULTIPLE ENTRY for 1 Year being available, no visit restriction.

I do not think this is quite what was needed

It looks like China is not going to reverse this policy any time soon, which is a shame.

It is a shame, because in many ways it is so obvious and so simple to correct, but nothing is done to correct it.

Let us say we have a company owned by JOE BLOGGS, he may do say 5 million USD a year, but he is not allowed to inspect his goods, inspect the factory or to go backwards and forwards between mutiple Chinese sources, this is not healthy and I have no idea whoever thought it was. There are thousands of Joe Bloggs.
