              Part One Basic Facts of TEDA

1.1 Basic Facts

On Dec. 6th, 1984, Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area

was set up as one of the first batch of China’s national-level development

Zones, upon the approval of the State Council of the People’s Republic of

China. TEDA is the abbreviation of its English name and Taida is the

Chinese transliteration of that name.
Now TEDA has become the best development zone with the largest scale,

fastest growth, and the best economic returns as well as a manufacturing

center and a high-tech application base in North China.

1.2 Geographic Location

Situated at the center of the Circum-Bohai Economic Circle and the East

Terminus of the Eurasian Continental Bridge, TEDA serves as the

gateway to the two supercities of Beijing and Tianjin, a pivot connecting

to the Northeast of China.

Adjacent to Tianjin Port, TEDA is 142 km away from Beijing, 180 km

away from Beijing Airport, 40 km away from Downtown Tianjin and 38

km away from Tianjin Binhai International Airport.

1.3 Administrative Jurisdiction

Covering an area of 40 km², TEDA is divided into the Living&

Administrative & Business Estate (11.3 km²), Industrial Estate(26.4 km²) ,

a university town and a forest park (3.1km²). TEDA also has set up such

three subzones as the Yat-sen Scientific and Industrial Park in Wuqing

District, the Microelectronics Industrial Park in Xiqing District, and the

Chemical Industria Park in Hangu District as well as the West Zone.

The Yat-sen Scientific and Industrial Park in Wuqing covers an area of 10

km²and the Microelectronics Industrial Park in Xiqing 2.32 km². The first

phase of the Chemical Industrial Park in Hangu covers 8 km², and will be

expanded to 20 km² for mid-term and 30 km²for long term. The West
Zone will occupy a total area of 48 km²according to planning.

Altogether, the three subzones plus the West Zone cover an area of 80

km². As local economy keep growing, more and more businesses will be

set up and TEDA will go on with its expansion.

1.4 Climate

TEDA’s climate is that of temperate continental monsoon climate and

residents here can enjoy the pleasure brought by the four seasons of

spring, autumn, summer and winter. In summer, the temperature is as

high as above 25-30 centigrade. In winter, it is usually dry and can be as

cold as   ‐2 to ‐10 centigrade. When it snows, sometimes            traffic

problems occur. It is windy and sometimes a sandstorm strikes this area

in spring and in autumn usually it is clear good weather, suitable for

outdoor activities. The average temperature throughout the whole year is

12   centigrade,   average   precipitation   602.9   millimeter,   average

evaporation 1909.6 millimeter and average air pressure 1016.4 millibar.

Sunshine time is 65%. Usually a southwest wind blows in this area, with

the average wind velosity at 4.5M/S.

1.5 Future Prospects

Along with the vigorous growth of Tianjin Binhai New Area and the

initiation of the Sino-Singapore Eco-city project, a new wave of

development will surely occur in TEDA, the kernal zone of TBNA.

According to the general planning of TEDA, in the future several years, a
batch of infrastructure facilities will be built in TEDA, such as the TEDA

Opera House, Green Belt along the TEDA River, west section of the

Jin-bin Light Rail, Sports and Leisure Park of the TEDA Promonade, the

second phase of the Binhai International Convention and Exhibition

Center, etc. As a result, TEDA’s living environment will be further

improved and the needs of the expats living in TEDA will be satisfied in a

better way.

             Part Two     Everday Life Information

After over two decades of development, TEDA has built a beautiful living

environment with complete supportive facilities, rich functions, and good

social order. In the 11.3-km2 living estate of TEDA live nearly 3,000

people from Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and over 30 countries and

regions. The co-existence of different languages, people of different skin

colors, and life styles bring about a unique multi-cultural environment of

TEDA. Continuous efforts have been made to organize series of events in

TEDA, such as the selections of candidates for TEDA Outstanding

Contribution Award and TEDA Honorary Citizen, Happy Community

Party for foreign families, etc. All these activities have facilitated TEDA

in building itself into an international area, improved its exchanges with

the outside, and helped expats adapt themselves to TEDA more rapidly.



2.1 Residence (including housing lease and purchase)

One may rent or sell a housing through a real estate agency or a real

estate developer. Certainly a real estate agency charges a certain amount

of commission, which usually equals to the rents of one or two months. In

TEDA well-equipped communities and hotel apartments are available to

expats and people from Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan.
2.1.1 Housing Lease

In general housing lease may involve the following processes:



2.1.1.1 Information Collection

You may collect information on housings for rent from internet media,

paper media, promotion materials, recommendation of friends and real

estate agencies. Generally most people prefer the recommendation of real

estate agencies. There are many such agencies in TEDA. After consulting

several such agencies, you may have a lot of information on housings

available in communities of TEDA.



Some foreign-related real estate agencies for your reference:

With regard to paper media, one may read magazines like Tianjin House,

Housing, Magazine U, High Class, Home, etc. which are available at

restaurants, tea houses, coffee bars, and other public places.



2.1.1.2 Housing Tour

In view of his expectation and collected information on housings, you

may decide the conditions and location of the housing to rent, and visit

the housing either with the companion of a real estate agent or after direct

contact with the house owner.



2.1.1.3 Agreement Signing

If you are satisfied with the layout, exposure, location, and rent for the

housing, and reach a consensus on renting the housing with the house

owner after the housing tour, you and the house owner will sign an

agreement on housing lease, which is an important document to stipulate

the rights and obligations of both parties. Once it is signed, the agreement

should not be abolished randomly even if there are complaints. Therefore,

you’d better not sign the agreement until you fully understand it. If you
find the housing through a real estate agency, the agency is obliged to be

present during the signing of the agreement, sign and stamp the

agreement, and give the agreement to you and the house owner. If you

find the housing through direct contact with the house owner, you’d

better have the third party to witness or a public notary office to notarize

the agreement.

A leasing agreement generally contains the following information:



2.1.1.3.1 The lessor and lessee

2.1.1.3.2 Time limit of the lease

It should be decided upon the consultation of the lessor and lessee.

2.1.1.3.3 The rent, date and terms of payment

In principle rent does not contain the daily fees for water, electricity,

heating, cable TV programs, property management, etc. but only refers to

the rent for the housing. The rent should be paid by month. Generally rent

of the next month should be paid before the end of each month. Therefore,

when the contract is signed in month A, both the rent of month A and the

next month should be paid. In general rent is either paid directly to the

house owner in cash or transferred to the designated account of the lessor

at the end of each month.

2.1.1.3.4 Deposit and its return

As a guarantee against default on payment of rent or possible damages to
the housing or its facilities, a deposit usually equals to the rent of two or

three months. During the leasing period, the house owner holds the

deposit. After the expiration of the leasing agreement, the house owner

gives the deposit back to the lessee if no damages are made to the housing

or its facilities. The amount of deposit is decided by both parties through

negotiation.

2.1.1.3.5 Daily expenses

Daily expenses contain fees for water, electricity, gas, heating, cable TV

programs, property management, etc. The two parties may discuss which

party covers daily expenses. In general the lessee shoulders daily

expenses.

2.1.1.3.6 Rights and obligations of both parties

The agreement should stipulate that during the leasing period the lessor

should not interfere with the lessee’s normal use of the housing or raise

the rent randomly, and the lessee should take care of the facilities of the

housing and avoid any damages to them and should not sublease, lend, or

transfer the housing to others for their use or illegal activities.

2.1.1.3.7 Expiration and renewal of the agreement

If he wants to continue to live in the housing after the expiration of the

agreement, the lessee should take the related procedures to renew the

agreement one month before the expiration of the agreement. Both parties

may rediscuss the rent and other related issues.
2.1.1.3.8 Special article

The agreement should contain a special article as follows:

If such situations as the change of work place, health recuperation, care of

families or relatives, etc. make the lessee unable to continue to use the

housing, he may apply for the termination of the agreement one month

ahead. In that way the lessee may avoid the losses brought by his failure

to terminate the agreement when he faces force majeure in the leasing

period.

2.1.1.3.9 Return and Recovery of the housing

To avoid unnecessary disputes during the return of the housing, special

articles are also needed to specify the extent of the recovery of the

housing and the proportion of the rent which should be paid.

2.1.1.3.10 Disputes

Negotiation is the common practice to solve disputes.



The available standard format of the leasing agreement may be

downloaded from internet.



2.1.1.4 Moving

After signing the agreement and moving to the housing, the lessee should

check if all the facilities in the housing are intact. If the facilities are

partially damaged or don’t meet the description in the agreement, the
lessee may either require the house owner to repair the damaged ones or

supply the facilities as described in the agreement or ask the house owner

to confirm the damages in writing. After moving to the housing, the

lessee should first record the readings on the meters of electricity, water,

gas, etc. for future reference.



2.1.2 Housing Purchase

According to Chinese laws, an expat or a citizen from Hong Kong,

Macao, or Taiwan who has lived and worked in TEDA for over one year

and holds a residence permit of more than one year may purchase a

commercial residential housing for him to use or live. When buying such

a housing for him to use or live, the buyer should offer his real name and

effective certificates (including his passport, residence permit, and

certificate of employment) and register the land use right and the housing

ownership at Tianjin Municipal Administrative Bureau of Land,

Resources and Housing.

RMB is the only currency acceptable in housing purchase. Therefore, the

buyer needs to convert foreign currency into RMB at a designated bank

before he pays for the housing. If the buyer pays for the housing directly

in RMB, he needs to provide the competent authority with the proof of

the legitimate source of his RMB.

As to the exchange settlement, the buyer should take relevant documents
(about which he may consult banks since requirements vary among banks)

to apply for exchange settlement at a designated bank engaged in foreign

exchange business. After it examines and approves the truthfulness of the

application, the designated bank will settle the exchange and transfer the

money to the RMB account of the real estate developer.

For more information, please consult Tianjin Administrative Bureau of

Land, Resources and Housing and banks in TEDA .(Please refer to the the

list of domestic and foreign books in Part Nine.)

take his or her dog to the animal quarantine institution or veterinary clinic

authorized by the animal husbandry authorities to have the injection of

rabies vaccine and obtain the Dog Immunization Status Certificate for the

year. The annual registration later will require the injection proof and the
Dog Immunization Status Certificate. The period from May 8 to June 30

every year is the time for the annual registration. A dog keeper shall pay a

dog management fee to the Public Security Bureau. For the first year, the

dog keeper needs to pay the fee at the Detachment Nine of Security

Administration Division of Tianjin Public Security Bureau. From the

second year on, the dog keeper may pay the fee at TEDA Branch of

Tianjin Public Security Bureau. The fee is 1,000 RMB yuan for the first

year and after that 500 RMB yuan each year.



According to relevant regulations, the Public Security Bureau will

punish the dog keeper who fails to go through annual registration

procedures in due time.



As stipulated in the Law of the People’s Republic of China on the Entry

and Exit Animal and Plant Quarantine, each traveler is allowed to bring

with him or her only one dog when entering China via Tianjin. In the

meantime, the dog bearer shall provide a valid immunization status

certificate issued by an official animal quarantine agency of the region or

country where the dog comes from. A valid vaccination certificate should

also be provided. The inspection and quarantine institution of Tianjin will

examine the quarantine status of the dog on the spot and those who pass

the exam should be kept in quarantine for 30 days in the place designated
by the port authority for quarantine of animals and plants.



The following departments are in charge of dog raising registration.

2.7. Traffic

(I) What’s the Difference Between the Traffic Rules of China and

Those of Foreign Countries?



The traffic rules, signs and habits vary significantly from one country to

another. For example, in China and USA, the steering wheels are on the

left side but in the Commonwealth Countries and Japan, the steering

wheels are on the right side. In China, a car does not have to stop if it

wants to turn right at a cross, but in some other countries the driver has to

stop the car at the cross first before he turns right. In China, usually the
driver shall stop at a red light and go at a green light, while in many

countries, the rule is that “pedestrians have priority over drivers.”

Therefore, the overseas citizens living in TEDA should adapt themselves

to the traffic rules of China and those who walk or ride bikes should pay

attention to the traffic. When you cross the street, you need to watch the

traffic lights and also check the traffic around to make sure of your safety.



In daily life and work, attention should be paid to the following rules, so

that the chance of accidents can be reduced.

1. In China, either motor or non motor driven vehicles should all keep

   right. This rule is different from those of some western countries. So,

   people from abroad should keep alert on this.

2. Pedestrians should walk in the sidewalks and for the roads without

   sidewalks pedestrians should walk near the side of the road.

3. Cyclists should use the non motor vehicle lane.

4. Pedestrians should pass the street via crosswalks, underpasses or

   pedestrian bridges. At the crosswalks with traffic lights, pedestrians

   should stop at red lights and cross the street not until the green light is

   on. As for the crosswalks without traffic lights, pedestrians should

   look out for the vehicles in the street. Pedestrians shall not chase

   around or rush across the street. As for those streets without

   crosswalks, pedestrians should pass the street straight and they should
   not suddenly cross the street when vehicles are coming close.



(II). How to Obtain a Driver’s License in China?

Since China did not sign the Geneva Conventions, neither the driver’s

license of other countries nor the international driver’s license is valid in

China. A driver’s license issued by China is requried.



How to Change the Original Driver’s License Into a Chinese Driver’s

License?

An expatriate or citizen of Hong Kong, Macao or Taiwan who lives or

works in TEDA and holding an overseas driver’s license or international

license should go to the Vehicle Administrative Department of Tianjin

Public Security Bureau to apply for a Chinese driver’s license. The

applicant should bring with him or her the original driver’s license, its

copy, its translation, passport, a one-inch bare-headed color photo, and

permit of residence. (The applicant is required to have a permit of

residence valid for over one year. The applicant with a permit valid for

more than three months and less than one year should apply for a

temporary driver’s license.) Also, the applicant will not obtain his or her

driver’s license until he or she passes the traffic rules exam held by the

Vehicle Administrative Department. (The exam paper is written in

Chinese. An interpreter is allowed to accompany the applicant in the
exam.) As for the applicant with less than three years of driving

experience, even if he or she passes the traffic rules exam, the driver’s

license will not be issued until the applicant passes the road test.



How to Obtain a New Chinese Driver’s License?

If an expat or a citizen of Hong Kong, Macao or Taiwan does not have a

driver’s license issued overseas or an international license, he or she

needs to provide aforementioned documents and will obtain a Chinese

driver’s license only after he or she completes training courses and passes

the road test.



How to Extend a Driver’s License?

The following documents are required:

1. The extended permit of residence and its copy

2. Original driver’s license

3. A one-inch bare-headed color photo

(III) How to Buy a Car?

When buying a car, an expat does not have to go through special

procedures, unless the car is bought with a loan. If a foreigner buys a car

with a loan, the down payment will be 10% to 20% higher than what is

needed for a Chinese. Please consult auto agents for further information

about specific procedures of loaning, loan line, and documents needed for

loans. Generally a buyer will have to go through the following steps to

buy a car.



Choosing a Car: First, go to the car market to search for a car you like

and then go to the 4S car shop to buy the car. Don’t forget bargaining. In

the car market, there are many different types of cars, the buyer may

make comparisons between different cars in terms of performance, needs,

price and other features. Once the buyer likes a specific type of car, he

may go to buy the car in the 4S shop. Usually the price of the 4S shop is

higher, but it is still negotiable. In such negotiations, the buyer is advised

to refer to the price set in the car market as the benchmark.



Signing the Contract: The buyer who buys a car with a loan needs to

sign a loan contract with the bank and sign a notary letter and a certificate
of guarantee with the notary office.



Payment: The buyer who buys a car with loans needs to bear the cost of

notarial affairs and guarantee, in addition to the down payment.



Industrial and Commercial Check of the Receipt: The buyer needs to

go to the Vehicle Administrative Department for the industrial and

commercial check of the receipt.



Vehicle Purchase Tax and Vehicle and Vessel Use Tax: The buyer pays

the vehicle purchase tax at the Vehicle Purchase Tax Collection

Department of the Traffic Administration, and pays the vehicle and vessel

use tax at the bank outlets authorized by the Local Taxation Bureau.



Car Check: The buyer should go to the testing plant designated by the

Traffic Police Brigade for car checking and pay the fee for checking.



Car Insurances: The Third-party Liability Insurance is a compulsory

insurance. As for the other insurances, you may choose to buy or not. If

you buy a car with a loan, you need to pay the credit insurance fee and

management fee, in addition to the various insurances.
Road Toll: The buyer pays the road toll at the bank outlets authorized by

the Road Toll Collection Department.



Auto Moving Certificate: The buyer should go to the On-the-spot Office

of the Traffic Detachment to obtain the Auto Moving Certificate.



Vehicle Registration Certificate: It should be obtained from the Vehicle

Management Department.



Record Keeping: The Security Committee is in charge of record keeping.



Filing: The Additional Charge Office is in charge of filing.



Upon the completion of the above formalities, you may drive your car

home. It is true that the formalities needed to buy a car in China are

complicated, but you may choose to authorize an auto dealer or

specialized agent to complete all the steps for you. You will just have to

pay extra service charges. In TEDA and its neighboring regions, there are

many agents of selling world famous brand cars and several large centers

of showcasing and selling cars.

2.9.Employment

Get Your Work Permit Ready.

To work in China, you need to follow the Provisions of Administration on

the Employment of Foreigners in China and other related rules and

regulations.

To work in Tianjin, a foreigner or a Chinese citizen from Hong Kong,

Macao or Taiwan needs to get a work permit. To be specific, to get legally

employed in this city, you shall enter China with an employment visa (if

with Chinese government, the agreement shall prevail), and obtain an

foreigner work permit (to be issued by Tianjin Labor and Social Security

Bureau) and an foreigner residence permit (to be issued by the Entry &

Exit Administration Office of Tianjin Public Security Bureau) after entry.

Foreigners without residence permit in China (i.e. the F.I.C.G visa),

foreigners staying in China as student or intern, or accompanying family

members are not allowed to work in Tianjin. Under special circumstances,

the employer may apply for work license for a foreign employee and the

employee shall, with the permit, go to local public security agencies to

change his/her identity certificate, obtain work permit and residence

permit before getting legally employed. Those who fit in certain
requirements (e.g. foreign professional technical and managerial

personnel employed directly by Chinese government) can be exempted

from work permit.

To get employed in Tianjin, you must meet the following

requirements.

(1)18 years of age or older and in good health

(2)with professional skills and job experience required for the work of

intended employment;

territory of Tianjin, the permit holder needs to get approval from the

issuing authority and go through alternation procedures. To leave Tianjin

for other Chinese provinces and cities to get employed, you need to

update employment declaration and get new work permit. You should,

according to the law, conclude a labor contract with your employer, the

term of which shall not exceed five years. Your work permit terminates
upon the expiration of your labor contract. To renew your labor contract,

your employer shall apply for the extension of employment term at labor

agencies 30 days prior to the expiration of the labor contract. Once

approved, the employer shall proceed to get your work permit extended.

   hires foreign employees without license will be penalized once

   detected. If the circumstance is especially serious, the foreigner

   involved will be ordered to leave China within a specific period.

(2) Labor disputes arise from a foreigner who gets employed in Tianjin

   without a foreigner work permit shall be heard at a people’s court as

   an ordinary civil case.

To get a work permit, please handle the procedures at the Tianjin Service

Office for Foreigners’ Employment.

2.15. Life Tips:

Dirnking Water

In China, running water is filtrated but still not directly drinkable. You

need to boil it first.

Electricity

Quite different from many other parts of the world, China’s rated voltage

is 220V/50Hz. Thus many foreign-made home appliances can not be

directly plugged in a Chinese outlet. You may need a transformer or

adapter.

Don’t Forget to Ask For Invoice.
When you are shopping, dining, going to entertainment venues or gyms,

or taking a taxi or a bus, don’t forget to ask for your invoice as an

evidence in case you need to lodge a complaint or find you lost objects

afterwards.

Safeguarding Your Rights as a Consumer

When you are shopping, dining, going to entertainment venues or gyms,

or taking a taxi or a bus, please go to a licensed operator so that your

rights as a consumer can be guaranteed and possible disputes can be

solved through legal channels. It would be difficult to safeguard your

rights if you choose to deal with an unlicensed taxi, bus or shop.

procedures:

    ①Dial 119 immediately at the sight of fire.

    ②Report the location of fire, especially the name of road (or nearby

roads), lane, and door number.

   ③ Briefly describe the location of fire and its surrounding

       environment and traffic.

    ④Report the cause of fire.

3.4 What to Do In Case Of Traffic Accident?

Call 110 or 122 immediately after a traffic accident and make sure you do

the following:

For Parties Involved in the Accident

Stop the Vehicle Immediately

 The vehicle must be stopped immediately after an accident. When the

vehicle is stopped, put on the hand brake, power off the electricity, and
turn on the danger light as provided in traffic code. If the accident occurs

at night, turn on the width light and tail light, too. If the accident occurs

on highways, put danger signs behind the vehicle.

Report the Accident Timely

 After an accident, you need to report the time, location, vehicles

involved and casualties by him/herself or via passing vehicles or

passengers to public security departments or traffic police nearby. You

are not supposed to leave the accident scene or cover up the case. After

calling the police, you can report to hospitals and emergency centers for

help. If there’s a fire at the scene, call the fire department. Please don’t

hang up the phone before you receive a clear answer from the operator.

When you have called the police, please go back to the scene for help or

police investigation.

Rescue the Wounded

 When the condition of the wounded is confirmed, please try your best to

save him/her if you can (e.g. haemostasis, enswathement, fixation,

moving and CPR) and try to send him/her to a nearby hospital for further

treatment. Please keep an eye on items scattered on the accident scene to

prevent looting.

Protect the Scene

 Protect the accident scene (including vehicles, personnel, livestock, and

trails) and make sure scattered items remain in their original position.
You may cordon the scene with ropes to prevent man-caused or natural

destruction or irrelevant personnel and vehicles from entering before the

police arrive. In case you have to move vehicles or wounded at the scene,

remember to mark their original positions. Never deliberately destroy or

forge a scene.

Prevent Fire or Explosion

 At the accident scene, you also need to ward against fire and explosion.

First, turn off the vehicle engine to eliminate potential risks. Never smoke

at the scene in case there are inflammables or explosives at the scene. If

the vehicles involved in the accident are carrying hazardous materials,

you need to inform the police and fire department of the toxicity,

combustibility and explosibility, causticity, load and leakage volume of

the materials for preventive measures.



Assist Evidence Collection at the Scene

 During scene investigation and evidence collection, you need to report

to the traffic police on the process of the accident according to facts and

shall not hide any true information.

For Passing Vehicles and Passengers

According to traffic code, passing vehicles and passengers shall offer

assistance when encountering a traffic accident. If you just pass by an
accident scene, you are in the position to report to relevant agencies,

assist to maintain order at the scene and proactively rescue the victims. If

you have witnessed the whole process of the accident, you are supposed

to report the facts to traffic departments. If you have witnessed a

hit-and-run accident, please record the license number and direction of

escape and report the information to the police.

Tips for First Aid

While rescuing accident victims, please don’t do it hastily. You should

prioritize your rescue process and follow medical instruction, otherwise

you may aggravate the wound or even endanger the life of the victim.

Procedure of On-the-spot Rescue

 In case of massive haemorrhage, hemostasia should be the first priority.

Clear the airway to avoid shock. Under emergent circumstances, you can

use a clean hankerchief or shirt to press the wound before you wrap. If

the victim shows no sign of breathing or heartbeat, you should perform

artificial respiration and CPR immediately. If the victim losses

consciousness, use hankerchief or your fingers to clear the earth or vomit

in his/her mouth and nose, let him/her lie on his/her side or stomach to

avoid choke. In case of limb fracture, you can use materials available at

the scene such as wooden sticks, panels or cloth stripes to fasten the

fractured limb.

Prevent Subsequent Injuries
 Whenever you often need to move a victim on or off the vehicle, make

sure you move him/her with special attention to avoid secondary injuries

such as back bone dislocation and spinal cord injury.



3.5 How to Perform First Aid?

Please do as follows:

   ①Please don’t panic when emergency occurs. Just call 120

   immediately for help.

   ②Before the ambulance arrives, perform out-hospital care to the

   wounded and sick if you can.

   ③Brief the medical workers on the health history and currently used

   drugs of the patient so as to help them accurately diagnose and treat

   the symptom.

            Part Six Medical Service

6.1 Medical Insurance

    China is not yet offering social insurance to foreign citizens. So,

Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and foreign citizens now staying in TEDA

are not entitled to Chinese social insurance. However, the Chinese

government is striving to set up an international healthcare center within

this year to cater to healthcare demands for Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan

and foreign citizens in China.

    If a foreign, Hong Kong, Macao or Taiwan citizen who works in

TEDA wants his or her medical bills covered by insurance, the bes t way
is to apply for commercial medical insurance services at a foreign

insurance company in Tianjin because the system and claim settlement

procedures offered by a foreign supplier are more familiar and acceptable

to them. Many local insurance companies are also offering commercial

insurance business to foreigners according to various demands. This is

also feasible for foreign, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan residents in

TEDA.

    According to the policies of various insurance companies, foreigners

who stay in China from six months to one year can, with their passports

and residence address certificates, buy Chinese commercial medical

insurances.

    Typical commercial medical insurances mainly refer to personal

accident insurance plus medical accident insurance. Insurance coverage

can be decided according to customer demand.

    Indemnification Procedures: You need to go to hospitals designated

by your insurer for medical treatment and than apply for indemnity at the

insurer’s with effective medical documents and bills.

    In Tianjin, there are several domestic and overseas insurers

available. Following are some major commercial insurance companies.

They may have different application requirements. For more detailed

information, please consult insurance professionals or log on to the

6.3 Common Diseases and Their Prevention

Cold

Home Prevention Tips

Prevention is the key for colds. You need to do more exercises, keep a

regular life, supplement work with entertainment, eat healthily, and dress

according to the season. Keep your feet, knee, and back warm, wash your

face and nose with cold water in the morning, don’t give up sports

activities, and have a stable mental mood. Pay attention to indoor air

freshness, and open your windows for at least 15 minutes every morning

to let in fresh air. If any family member catch a cold, sterilize air timely.

Diet

When you catch a cold, eat easy-to-digest, light and soft food with high
vitamin and protein. Eggs and soybeans are better protein options than

meat, fish, and shrimp. Eat more mildly cooked or boiled vegetables and

fruits and don’t eat raw or cold food. Have some honey to moisten your

lungs and expedite feces excretion. If you cough and have aching

muscles, here is a recipe: boil an egg with pear, date, ginger and sugar

candy in water and take this in the morning and before sleep.

Eat more zinc-rich foods. Zinc is an indispensable microelement for

human body. Just 50 to 100 mg of zinc can effectively prevent flue.

Seafood, lean meat, coarse food grain and beans are rich in zinc. Also you

should eat more VC-rich food or take VC pills to reduce the permeability

of capillary vessels so as to prevent virus from entering your body. Green

vegetables, tomato, cauliflower, green pepper, oranges, strawberry, kiwi

fruit, watermelon and grape are all rich in VC. Better eat these food raw

because VC is easily lost during the heating process.

Heat Stroke

If you have low-grade heat stroke, drink more salty cold drinks. If you

feel dizzy, sick or vomit, take some Rendan or HuoXiangZhengQi liquid.

People who suffer from severe heat stroke should be moved to shady and

cool place for first aid and be immediately taken to hospital.

Prevention

   1. Guard yourself against the hot sunshine with sun-proof products;

     2. Ensure enough sleep;
    3. Take more warm bath to lower body temperature;

    4. Eat more vegetables and fruits, drink appropriate amount of salty

    water, green-bean soup, sour plum juice.

Prevention of Bowel Diseases

Symptoms

The most common symptom is acute diarrhea (acute gastroenteritis,

bacillary diarrhea, cholera, food poisoning, etc.) Patients may suffer

from vomit, diarrhea, bellyache and fever.

Prevention

1. Ensure good sanitation and exterminate mosquito, fly, rat and

cockroach so as to reduce the chance of intestinal infectious diseases;

2. Strengthen diet sanitation management. Separate cooked food from

uncooked ones. Ensure the quality of refrigerated and processed food.

Always select fresh food for cooking;

3. Ensure cooking and dining utensils are disinfected. Strengthen food

sanitation management. Cooked food and leftovers must be heated long

enough before eating.

4.Take more vinegar, garlic, onion, leek and other antibiotic food to

improve immunity.

5. Don’t drink unboiled water. Don’t eat spoiled food.

6.Before eating any raw fruit, soak it in clean water and sterilize it with

cleanser.
Prevention of AIDS

1.Safe Sex Precautions

Any sex activity with HIV carriers may cause the spread of AIDS. To

protect your family against AIDS, please make sure you do as follows:

    ① Don’t try casual sex: The more sex partners one has, the greater the

chance to get infected.

    ② Use latex condom during each sexual intercourse if you are not

sure whether your sex partner is a carrier or not. Pay attention to the

quality and instruction of condom to prevent infection.

    ③ Avoid alcohol and drug abuse. Alcohol and drug may deprive you

of reason and discretion and have a negative impact on your sex

activities.

  2、Avoid Sharing of Needles.

  ①Stay away from drugs.

  ② Never share a needle with anyone for medical injection.

4. Avoid Contacts with Blood.

Many diseases, such as HIV AIDS and hepatitis B are transmitted

through blood. So, be careful whenever you deal with a wound.

  ① Avoid contacts with other’s blood through your skin, eyes and

mouth.

  ②Wear disposable latex gloves before dealing with wounds for others,

5. Prevent Mother-to-Infant Transmission.
To avoid transmitting the deadly virus to the infant, the mother must

confirm she is not infected in the first place. If a couple cannot confirm

whether they are infected or not, they are supposed to take a HIV

antibody test before pregnancy.

 Emergency Response to Tellurism

While traveling outside your hometown, you may feel stomach and

intestine discomfort, sick, dizzy, or suffer from vomit, excretive disorder

or tetter. These all could be symptoms of tellurism. Try the following

solutions.

Solution One

Drink some honey before sleep. Honey can nourish spleen and stomach,

calm down mind and soothe the nerves so as to help your sleep. In

addition, moderate amount of honey can also help treat coprostasis, in

which the disorder of intestinal flora caused by the change of living

environment is to blame.

Solution Two

Drink tea regularly. Tea leaves are rich in various microelements, which

may supplement the scarcity of certain microelements in local food and

water. This diuretic drink can refresh your energy and accelerate blood

circulation and thus help the discharge of allergy-caused substance from

your body to prevent and reduce urticaria.
