KINDLY TAKE NOTE

While various measures have been put in place by the government to help curb pollution in China, there are still potential health issues associated with the poorer air quality. The British Council does its utmost to provide a working environment that minimises employees’ exposure to pollutants, however, anyone wishing to work in the cities of Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou or Chongqing should be aware of the situation.
