"The internship opportunities could give young people of Hong Kong and Macao a chance to know more about Guangdong before they make the decision to start their career. I believe the internship will be helpful to promote youths from Hong Kong and Macao to work in Guangdong," said Yu Chengfeng, who is from Hong Kong, and currently working at Jinan University in Guangzhou. He suggested the available internship positions could be introduced in universities as well.
