After tracing the history of Mingxi new qiaoxiang in the last decade, this paper attempts to explore the factors that have initiated and shaped the transnational emigration wave in this inland mountainous area of Fujian. In particular, both positive and negative social influences have resulted from the emigrants on the above-mentioned sending society. It argues that in the current age of migration, it would be better to formalize and promote the peasants' self-made migration network instead of simplg trying to destory it. It is obvious that stopping migration is neither possible nor desirable.
