Assignment in Wuhan

Today I would like to discuss Wuhan in China. If you were to be sent to Wuhan on an expatriate assignment or if you were to relocate there, you are likely to meet people who speak Mandarin Chinese.

The cost of clothing is high. The cost of food and beverages and transport is low. The cost of housing is very high. Wuhan is the capital of Hubei province, People's Republic of China, and is the most populous city in central China. Wuhan is an important centre for economy, trade, finance, transportation, information technology, and education in Central China. Its major industries includes optic-electronic, automobile manufacturing, steel manufacturing, new pharmaceutical sector, biology engineering, new materials industry and environmental protection. Wuhan has over one third of French investment in China, the most among Chinese cities.

From a day to day comfort perspective, you are likely to experience a high degree of hardship. Be sure to negotiate an appropriate salary or allowance to compensate for the cost of living. If you live in Wuhan or if you lived there recently, let us know what your experience has been. Would you live in Wuhan again?
