maybe you meant China is importing women from India and Africa
SE Asian women are in high demand!



"Many thousands of Thai women in Isaan, northeast Thailand, are electing to marry foreigners, becoming what is known as a 'phanrayaa farang' or 'foreigner's wife'. Although these foreigners are of many nationalities, a large community has built up in one part of North east Thailand of Thai women with Swiss husbands."

Many Chinese men go to Vietnam to find a wife.
They pay something like 20000 yuan (3000 USD) to the agents.

I find it hard to believe the so-called A-grade women have a hard time finding a husband in China.

Black and Hispanic women are outnumbering black and hispanic men in college graduation rates. These usually marry down or find someone of a different race with similar educational background of their own.

Since chinese prefer male babies with their one child policy there is a huge shortage of chinese women for them so they will take what they can get. It's going to become more of a problem with the next generation.

I think it's more complicated than just saying the leftover women are all A-quality. Yeah, maybe a lot of them are A-quality in terms of their careers, but most likely not A-quality in their looks or their personality. If they're the type of women who outmaneuvered or stabbed their male colleagues on their way up the corporate ranks, it's not a surprise that they are not seen as wife material at all.

Men may marry "down" when we are comparing careers, but no men will marry down when it comes to looks and personality! So the author of this article haven't seen rich ugly guys (A-quality in terms of careers) marry sexy bombshells (ranked D-quality in terms of career)?

So urban Chinese won't marry rural Chinese women but are willing to marry foreign women who aren't of the same race. That doesn't make much sense to me.

It said in the quotes that it's the RURAL Chinese who are importing foreign women.
