(Beijing) -- Three rust-belt provinces in China's northeast continue to suffer from an exodus of talent, with college graduates from these regions opting to work elsewhere, a recent report shows.

Last year, only 47.5% of university graduates from the three provinces of Liaoning, Jilin and Heilongjiang chose to work with local employers. That compared to 49.2% in 2015, according to the report jointly released by Beijing-based private consultancy Mycos and state-owned publishing house Social Sciences Academic Press.
