In the initial months, companies operating in China struggled through its transition phase. Challengessuch as systemic/technical glitches, a vicious cycle of process delays, and repeated requests for additional documents – combined to frustrate companies’ plans and routines in assigning their employees to China and recruiting and onboarding new foreign talent.

Now more than a year since its introduction…. Where do we stand? Are things now getting better as we move into the second half of 2018? Are more process changes coming?
