The students will work as interns for between five and seven weeks at major state-owned enterprises, global 500 companies and private firms.

The program, initiated in 2015, is aimed at helping Hong Kong students better understand Guangzhou's economic development as well as Guangzhou's important role in the Bay Area development.

Tutor guidance, city tours and a variety of other activities will be organized during the internships to help the students learn about construction and development of the city.

Guan Haozhong, a student from Hong Kong Baptist University, said he was really looking forward to the internship. "I hope I can learn professional knowledge and expand my circle of friends during the internship here," Guan said.

The program is jointly organized by the Guangdong Office of Hong Kong and Macao Affairs, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region's Home Affairs Department and the Commission on Youth.
