I am currently working in Paris and my firm proposed me to work in our Shanghai office. I would like to know what is the cost of living there, is it cheaper or more expensive than Paris? How much is it for a central flat there? I found some information but is is 2/3 years old already and I think the prices in shanghai are changing constanlty.
Also, I would like to have feedback from French expats about the differences between a local contract and a French one? on what should I be careful? are there advantages to have a local contract, in terms of taxation for example?
