It has been over a month since the launch ceremony of 2019 Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area Hong Kong Youth Internship Program on 14th June. After being placed into enterprises, many groups of Hong Kong students have started their journey as interns in Guangzhou. On 19th July, San Jiao Ling (SJL) arranged a welcome event to give Hong Kong students a warm greeting. Mr. He Zhehua, External Secretary of the Association of International Education Exchanges in Hong Kong, Ms. Gong Xiaoyun, Project Manager of Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Guangdong. Ms. Chan Yu, Vice President of Hong Kong Youth Power Association, representatives from Guangzhou Metro Group Co.Ltd, Guangzhou Broadcasting Network, etc, and students from Hong Kong attended the welcome event.
This welcome event served as a platform for enterprises and Hong Kong students to foster exchanges so that the two sides could know more about each other before the internship program officially starts. To create a relaxing atmosphere, SJL particularly chose a cafe in Guangzhou as the event venue. The gigantic floor-to-ceiling windows enabled participants to have a panoramic view of downtown Guangzhou; the Canton Tower was also near at hand. This spectacular view certainly added a special flavor to the welcome event.
To make this welcome event more interactive, SJL had also prepared a tea break session. After several splendid speeches, students enjoyed the afternoon tea with their respective company representatives and also continued their conversations.
In the following weeks, SJL will also organize unique cultural immersion activities on weekends. Through tailor-made travel routes, these activities will allow students to gain a better understanding of Guangzhou’s history, culture, and social actuality in no time, thereby broadening their horizons. Meanwhile, SJL also wishes all the best to Hong Kong students and hopes that they will enjoy living and working in Guangzhou.
