Will removing term limits in China’s Communist party increase immigration?

President Xi and China’s communist party is planning to change its constitution to remove term limits. The recent announcement has made a lot of Chinese worried about the future of the country. The search of "immigration" on Chinese search engine Baidu.com has increased dramatically after the announcement. The Chinese government is now restricting search data for “immigration” to be public due to the influx of interest. We believe if President Xi plans to stay in power long-term, there will be a higher percentage of Chinese looking to emigrate in the next few years, as citizens are concerned about the direction of the country.
