Wuhan - Post Report Question and Answers

What is the relative size of the expatriate community? How would you describe overall morale among expatriates?

There are very few expats, but like almost anywhere, there are some well-known ones, like the Belgian who owns a pub or the American with the barbecue and brewery. Western expats probably number in the hundreds, especially post-pandemic. There are likely more East Asian expats. - Jul 2021

It is a medium-small expat community, but it seems to be growing, especially as the US consulate expands (though the French car companies are diminishing). I feel like it is big enough that you meet a variety of people from all over the world, but small enough where you do eventually know some people at all the expat events you attend. - Jan 2020

Small and you are still a rare sight on the streets. It's about 4000 out of a population of 8 million. - Feb 2008
