Beijing introduced several new measures on Wednesday to further attract overseas talent to boost technological innovation, Xinhua reported.

According to the Beijing Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau, public institutions, State-owned enterprises, and new research and development organizations are able to join governmental departments to provide specially appointed positions for overseas talent who have global vision, acquire world-leading technology and are familiar with international regulations on commerce, law, finance and technology.

The specially appointed positions in government offices and public institutions will be paid in multiple ways, other than following the salary system of civil servants.

Talented individuals who play prominent roles after being employed will have priority to be selected as "distinguished experts of Beijing", as well as being awarded a prize worth 500,000 yuan (,122.92) to 1 million yuan.

At the same time, Beijing will provide regular overseas talent recruiting programs with 500,000 yuan for one year and key programs with no less than 500,000 yuan per year for three consecutive years.

The research institutions that employ foreign experts by the Plan for One Thousand Talents Program will receive aid equivalent to 80 percent of the experts' salaries from the municipal government.
