Chinese Relocation & Education Lunch

Posted to Event by Dr. Daniel Lebowitz of World Wellness Health Institute at 1:39 PM

Over the past two years, the number of expatriates moving to China has surged, lured by China's booming economy. But the steady influx of newcomers has created a huge bottleneck in another area: the region's international educational system.
The dearth of places at the top preschool, primary and secondary international schools is acute and has prompted warnings from business groups that it could erode Hong Kong's position as the international financial hub of Asia. Some people have had to cancel or delay moves because their children couldn't get into schools, while others are planning to move elsewhere.
To help address this issues The Forum For Expatriate Management: Pennsylvania Chapter with be hosting their event on 11/19/14 from 12-3 PM on the issues of school placement in China. Elizabeth Sawyer from the Bennett School Placement Worldwide will be presenting with Laura Levenson from Weichert. RSVP to nluczyszyn@waynemoving.com or calling 267-614-3865
