My employer is a Chinese company and I work in a govt area through that company. The place I work and my manager are pretty aggressively pushing for it. The national govt has put out their targets and it is up to the local govts to reach them. It works kind of like this, national govt puts pressure on provincial govt to reach goal, provincial govt puts pressure on local govt to reach goal, local govt puts pressure on locals to reach goal. It is still voluntary though, but the last level of pressure is the one you feel and they can make life very uncomfortable.Pressured by who, exactly? Your western employer, or the Chinese government? If the latter--local government, provincial government, or national government?
