According to Shanghaiist, China will roll out news rules to streamline its work visa system in its quest to attract more highly-skilled foreign talent. According to the rules,  it will classify all foreign workers into three distinct categories: A (top talent), B (professional talent), and C (unskilled workers or those working the service industry).

So, how exactly will you be graded? Well, as you might expect, it's all rather vague. The Global Times explains that foreigners will be given points based on: their salary in China, their educational background, how long they've worked in China, their Chinese language proficiency, their age, and where they work (you'll get more points for working in less developed regions).

85 points or higher? You get an A, congratulations, you're one of the good ones! Only 60 points or higher? That's a B, still have some work to do. Below 60 points? Sorry, you're a C-level talent.

Excited to find out your rank? Well, the reform goes nationwide next April, but a trial run will begin in October for those living in Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin, as well as in Anhui, Guangdong, Hebei, Ningxi, Shandong and Sichuan.

Mssrs Gates, Bezos, Ellison et al would not have qualified for visa, all of them drop-outs, none of them has a PhD, all of them founders of multi-billion corporations, all of them innovative visionaries.

Bezos' "Blue Origin" is simply inspirational.
One of these days, PRC would end up with the largest number of PhDs per capita, doing something... or not.
Let the dice fly high

In my opinion, it will actually drive away much talent and some will not even try to come to China
