Why is nobody worried about the Asian brain drain?

Willian Easterly asks this question
Aid-financed scholarships for African students to study in the US or Europe would be worth a lot more than a million “capacity-building” projects. The usual argument against such scholarships is fear of brain drain — that the African students would not return home.
So why would Asian students return more than African students? The answer to this is highly related to the causes of return migration, and for those who know my current research you would probably know my answer. Looking forward to analyzing my data and see if the results support my theory!
