Youngsters Make Up Most HK Bay Area Migrants in First Quarter, Survey Finds

(Yicai Global) April 12 -- Over half of the migrants flowing into China's fast-growing Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area were aged between 21 years old and 30 years old during the first quarter.

Some 39 percent of the total earn between CNY4,000 (USD595.5) and CNY8,000 per month, according to a survey from Zhaopin, one of the country's most-popular recruitment platforms. 

Among the workers converging on the Bay Area, more than three-quarters are men and close to half hold a bachelor's degree. Some 52.8 percent are aged between 21 years old and 30 years old and over one-third possess between one and five years of work experience. 

They mainly choose jobs in industries such as real estate, construction, internet, manufacturing, automotive and education. Over one-fifth work in the property sector, far exceeding those of internet and manufacturing combined, which are key sectors for the region.

Among China's top 10 real estate companies (excluding those based in Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions), seven are headquartered in the Bay Area.
