“I’m now studying in Shandong University, I had an internship in Qianhai and now in Nansha,” said Li Zhuoyan, “I heard of Nansha as a newly developed district before. And through the internship, I found it’s actually developing very well with lots of opportunities. ”
Gao Fei, Chairman of Nansha Youth Federation, said the internship program enables the Hong Kong and Macao youths to blend in the local environment, and showcases the opportunities that they could seize in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area through holding trips to cities including Shenzhen, Foshan and Huizhou.
“In the beginning, we only open to the Hong Kong and Macao students studying at the Jinan University. But now we also accept students directly from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, and see more and more students showing interest in the program,” said Gao Fei.
