Seriously. There is a Shekou office called the Shekou Subdistrict Census Office for Information on the Handling of Illegal Buildings Leftover from the History of Rural Urbanization. But the signage is well balanced. And think of the cocktail party conversations this business card could spark!
Great find, Mary… this is absolutely archetypal!! This country is incomprehensible for my half-German, half-Norwegian brain.
Long time no hear! I hope you are well. I find the the nomenclature stifling — the function is so specific as to pre-empt any larger vision. Unless, of course, their job is simply to county the number of illegal houses? But if so why a separate office? Why not just include the task in regular census activities? Unless, of course, its another land grab strategy, in which case it makes perfect cents (sense)!
I have no idea what the signage says but from the sounds of it it’s very confusing.
