An internship camp attracting about 500 students from Taiwan kicked off in Kunshan, Jiangsu province on July 16.
The students will be working for about a month in nearly 200 State-owned, private and Taiwan-funded enterprises in 30 industries such as technology, finance, manufacturing, and news media.
These companies include Guoxin Investment Group, Huatai Securities, Hodo Group, Info Vision Optoelectronics, Fubon Bank, and other renowned companies across the province.
Sun Ping, who is pursuing a master's degree at Southeast University, said that the internship allows young people from Taiwan to better understand cross-Strait relations and the economic development on the Chinese mainland.
In addition to internships, students will also participate in social exchange activities in industrial parks, industrial bases, families, and communities, as well as take part in photography and writing competitions.
More than 5,400 internship positions in Jiangsu have been offered to Taiwan students since 2017. Students who perform well during their internships stand to earn a bonus of 6,000 yuan ($860), while students from families facing financial difficulties are eligible for a subsidy of 4,000 yuan.
