ABSTRACT

Since the competition between cities is the competition for talents, the altitude of future development for a city is determined by the strength of the city’s attraction to talents, which is in turn determined by the pros and cons of the talent environment in the city. At present, Shaoxing, relying on the strategic positioning of “full integration into the Yangtze River Delta”, is working hard to build a city of talent gathering, but many shortcomings in terms of specific implementation still exist. By constructing an evaluation system for talent gathering in the Yangtze River Delta, this paper uses the approach of factor analysis and extracts three major factors affecting regional talent gathering, namely, the prospects for urban economic development, the urban culture and education environment, and the income security situation. Based on the disparities between Shaoxing and other prefecture-level cities in the Yangtze River Delta in view of different factors, as well as the analysis of the current situation of the three major pressures on talent gathering in Shaoxing, namely regional location, economic dynamics and urban infrastructure, the research was carried out with the result showing: 1) By systematically sorting out the scores of the talent attraction factors of counties in Zhejiang Province, it is found that counties (municipalities) with strong talent attraction are concentrated in the regions of northern Zhejiang, Hangzhou and Ningbo municipalities. 2) Compared with other cities in the Yangtze River Delta,the comprehensive index of talent concentration in Shaoxing is lower than the average level, with the economic development prospects and urban cultural and educational environmental factors’ influential effect on talent concentration being lower than average, and slightly higher than average when it comes to income status factors. Currently, the concentration of talents in Shaoxing Municipality is under the pressure of both regional location and economic momentum. According to the results of the study, suggestions form four aspects to improve the concentration of urban talents in Shaoxing were put forward, namely, diversity in routes, integration of industry, science and education, optimization of living environment, and protection of talent income.
