China to scrap temporary residence permits -Xinhua
China promised on Sunday to abolish all temporary residence permits for its citizens, taking a small step that some experts said does not address deeper problems in the nation's household registration system.

 

All Chinese residents have a hukou, or residence registration account, which determines their access to education and other social welfare services.

 

However, the quality of services tied to a rural hukou is inferior to that of an urban account, a source of grievance for millions of Chinese migrants who live in cities but do not enjoy the same welfare services as permanent urban dwellers.
