Chinese Seniors Return to China for Retirement

China Press, Posted: Dec 24, 2009

SHANGHAI, ChinaAn increasing number of retired Chinese seniors has been returning to China in recent years. According to China Press, first-generation Chinese immigrants often work as low-income workers in other countries and live on limited savings or government subsidies after they retire. However, their money stretches further if they spend their retirement years in China. Seventy-nine-year-old Chinese American Xiong DeCai told China Press that he is enjoying his retirement life at a Shanghai senior facility. He said he felt very lonely while living in American senior housing but now, he can play mah jong and enjoy Chinese food with friends who share his language and culture.
