On a rainy day in June, a middle-aged Syrian expat named Nidal Chami, along with his wife and son, came to the Taizhou Administrative Service Center and obtained permanent residence identity cards, also known as green cards, for his entire family, who has been living in Taizhou, East China's Zhejiang province for eight years.

"Today is a very special day for us. We are so happy to get the Chinese green card. Thank you, China! Thanks to all the people who have helped us," Chami said.
Chami and his wife currently raise two daughters and one son in the city. Both daughters are fifth-graders at a private primary school. The son, who was born in the city, is one and a half years old now.
