Chinese migrants have not left their workplaces in Blagoveshchensk’s central market in the Amur region
Chinese migrants have not left their workplaces in Blagoveshchensk’s central market in the Amur region, after the law banning foreign workers to sell at markets and retail outlets came into force on April 1. Amur region’s markets work in usual mode, while those in the neighbouring Khabarovsk and Primorsky territories became empty. “Inspection raids showed that 99 percent of foreign citizens have work permits and do not violate Russia’s effective legislation. There are no claims to them,” an official of the Federal Migration Service’s regional department told Itar-Tass on Tuesday. “Blagoveshchensk’s central market has already changed its status in March and turned into a service and trade complex,” Amur region deputy governor Alexander Gordeyev said. He pointed out that this market was withdrawn from the list of markets, where foreign workforce is banned to work. The regional authorities say “they managed to avoid social tensions and price hikes that may follow soon after China’s low-price goods that are of great demand disappeared.” Some other markets in the Amur region’s town and districts follow Blagoveshchensk’s suit. Over 1,000 migrants, mainly from China, are engaged in retail and wholesale trade in the Amur region.
