“Nansha is located at the geographic center of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area,” said Xing Hua, a member of Standing Committee of CPC Nansha Committee and head of Nansha’s United Front Work Department, “the district is facing huge opportunities as the cooperation with Hong Kong and Macao SARs, as well as countries along the Belt and Road is increasingly tightened.”
“In the future, Nansha will provide youths from Hong Kong and Macao with more opportunities in fields of people-to-people exchange, internship, entrepreneurship and trade,” said Xing, “we encourage these youths to start their own businesses here and eventually expand to other regions.”
This year’s program attracted more than 600 students to participate in their 4-to-6-week internships in three batches. They will work in Nansha’s major enterprises and organizations, such as banks, hi-tech companies and government departments.
Li Zhuoyan, a student from Hong Kong, started his internship a week ago in Country Garden, a Guangdong-based Fortune 500 enterprise leading in real estate industry. He said he always wanted to try different environments and would consider starting his career in Chinese mainland, especially Nansha.
