ABSTRACT
The major dilemma of developing countries is that they are continuously facing the Brain Drain. “Brain drain” is defined as situation where people with high skills, qualification, and competency, level quite their native countries and emigrate. The foundation of the interest for skilled migrants is economic. The resultant factor is that the economically countries with developed economies routinely exchange high level skills, while less developed world is being brought into skill shortage and talent from these regions shift to developed regions often on permanent bases. Due to this phenomenon the number of researchers is much higher in the developedcountries as compare to developing countries. This paper is an effort to give overview of brain drain of researchers from developing countries mainly focusing on China, mention the factors for which people leave their countries and go abroad, policies adopted by China to address the issue and some suggestions regarding policies that can be adopted to retain the talent that is being continuously drained from the developing countries in form of migration of researchers from the developing to developed countries.
