An employee works at a clothes factory in Huaxi village, at Jiangsu province December 3, 2010. In China’s richest village of Huaxi, a booming market town of 36,000 in the affluent eastern province of Jiangsu, every family has at least one house, two cars and
$250,000 in the bank. Officials from elsewhere in China tour Huaxi to find out how this once sleepy village, just 576 residents in the 1950s, is now so rich and
why non-local businessmen would donate million-dollar factories to buy the privilege of a local residence permit. REUTERS/Carlos Barria (CHINA – Tags: EMPLOYMENT BUSINESS POLITICS SOCIETY) – RTXVCEH
