Program background

With its increasing socioeconomic development, China is moving towards the world in a more positive and all-round manner. The international community, especially the younger generation, has gradually shifted the focus from the traditional tourism in China to long term plans involving working and living in China. “A country will prosper only when its youth thrive”, therefore, all levels from governments to enterprises are actively promoting exchanges and learning between China and the world‘s youth groups.

Following the launch of the “Millenary Trainee Plan" in China and France in 2015 to promote youth exchanges between the two countries, China and Germany also signed the “Joint Intention Statement of the Government of the People’s Republic of China and the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany on the Youth Internship Exchange Program ” in 2018. Exchanges between youth across the world and Chinese youth are increasingly booming. In recent years, Chinese Testing International have build platforms for expats studying in several universities in China. Top institutions like Tsinghua University, Peking University and Fudan University highly value and have been actively involved in this program. In order to strengthen study and internship opportunities for foreign students in China, through our research and integration of various resources, Chinese Testing International have combined their strengths in language and teaching channels to jointly launch the Global Youth Innovation Internship Program. This program works as a platform to display a multi-angle and three-dimensional contemporary China to the world and to get talented people ready for this cross-cultural, trans-regional and globalized era.
