We must had so much disdain for them that in the beginning we beg them to visit and invest.
Erm. The problem is that despite PRC's (at least during Mao and early Deng) general dislike of overseas Chinese, they were the easiest to attract. It's something to do with roots. So the dislike isn't mutual. Of course, since Jiang Zemin, things have changed 180 degrees.
