Excerpt:

Professor Wang Fei-Ling, from the Georgia Institute of Technology’s Sam Nunn School of Interna-tional Affairs, noted that the latest changes were part of a trend of us-ing hukou to attract talent to cities.

Beijing first declared its intention to roll out a point-based system in 2015. Similar systems have been launched in the past few years in such cities as Shanghai and Shen-zhen.

“Low-skilled and low-wage workers from outside have never had much chance to obtain a Beijing hukou, even though they may have been an indispensable part of the Beijing economy for a long time,” said Prof Wang.
