Chinese dual-citizenship should be allowed ONLY for foreign countries with NO history of hostility towards China and Chinese.
Chinese dual-citizenship should NEVER be allowed for Western countries such as the USA with a long history of hostility towards China and Chinese.

Dual citizenship  = Polygamy

Does China expect those are with dual citizenship would be loyal to China?

Do they perform the military service in China?

Do they pay taxes for China?

China has enough population. Why do we need those overseas Chinese people who give up their Chinese passports and disown their motherland?

In the mindset of those people, their personal interests are higher than their old country.
In their mentality, the adopted countries of theirs are better than China.

The loyal Chinese citizens fight for our own freedom, contribute for the development and prosperity of China generation after generation. Where are those guys when they turn their back to China?

The loyality is as cheap as dirt to those overseas Chinese people who dssert their motherland. How much do they donate to their old country- China? Please upload the donation proofs.

The dual citizenship would only encourage more and more educated and/or talented Chinese people to leave China.

Those overseas Chinese people would like to adopt dual citizenship, because it is easy for them to come and leave to China anytime.

Besides that, it is good for corrupted Chinese officials to hide their assets if people can have dual citizenship.

China has enough population 14 billion people. From 1980s, Chinese government has strictly implemented the birth controls.  What on earth can these overseas Chinese people contrubitute to China, except for they are ethnically Chinese?

The mainstream of Singaporeans are Chinese but it is an undeniable fact that many Singaporeans deny their Chinese identities, and look down Chinese people from China. Singapore is an ally of the US, and plays a role of containing China in Asia all the time.

It is not necessary to hold a certificate to wish China well and help its peoples rise despite so many attempts these days by some foreign powers to denigrate it.

If the eyes have seen, the head will know so the heart should be willing.

Southeast Asian Chinese should NOT be allowed dual citizenship because of the history of hostility towards China and Chinese in Southeast Asia. However, they should be allowed to reclaim their lost Chinese citizenship if and only if 1). they return to China and 2). they renounce their Southeast Asian citizenship.

In this age of globalization, Chinese citizens will find themselves studying, working and living in foreign countries for long periods of time. If they happen to marry foreigners, their spouses should be able to acquire Chinese Citizenship WITHOUT abandoning their foreign nationality. Likewise, their children born in foreign countries should be able to come back to China and reclaim their Chinese nationality WITHOUT giving up their foreign citizenship.

Loyalty should be measured not by a piece of paper but by words and deeds. If these foreigners — regardless of ethnicity — want to become Chinese, they should be given the chance to prove their worth to China. They should be judged based on their conduct not their status. It’s time for China to discard outdated concepts of nationality and amend the nationality and immigration laws for the 21st century.
