Keeping along with the Title of this post by OP...
What is the power of the Residence Permit? Are there a list of rights and abilities that I have now that I have a residence permit. I've been told by my schools director that I am afforded all the rights of a citizen..except the right of becoming a full citizen
Here's some questions to give it a little direction:
Can I kill Chinese people?
Sorry just had to ask
Can I get involved in any Chinese investment's like Chinese versions of CD's, IRA ect.,
Is there anything worth noting that I can take part in regarding politics?
It sounds like with a Residence Permit that I can leave China and go to __(insert places name) then come back w/o a problem.
Is there anything else notable?
