Women have always been well established in the Chinese economy and are, in fact, equal. China also has a high proportion of women in management positions in comparison to other countries. This trend will probably continue because a traditionally good balance between family and career, extensive training opportunities, and excellent language skills are connected with women’s ambition and motivation. For global companies, this situation opens up a much larger field for recruiting than might be felt in the home market. In any case, women in China are very interesting for employers. The only thing you must consider is the retirement age in order to ensure a good transition of know-how. While men retire at the age of 60, for women in China it is at 50.
