    The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) received a sponsorship of about HK$130,000 from the Hong Kong Young Industrialists Council (HKYIC) to launch the “YIC x OUHK Internship Programme in Newly Industrialized Country – Vietnam”. The first batch of students will travel to Ho Chi Minh City and Haiphong City in Vietnam in the coming summer holiday for a six-week internship to learn about the local industrial practices and trade culture.

    Speaking at the kick-off ceremony held last Saturday (17 Jun), Acting President of OUHK Prof. Reggie Kwan expressed his deepest gratitude to HKYIC for their support and tremendous effort in liaising with the corporations and industrial partners in Vietnam, so that the Internship Programme can be successfully carried out.

    Prof. Kwan added that the Internship Programme echoes with the “Belt and Road” initiative of the government by offering excellent opportunities for students to learn more about the industrial development in prominent cities in Southeast Asia. Through the Programme, students could gain a deeper understanding on related industries, cultivate a global perspective and become the new blood for Hong Kong's industries in the future.

    The President of HKYIC Mr Cheung Kit said that HKYIC is delighted to be partnering with the OUHK in nurturing future talents. As of last year, 14 OUHK students have received training from HKYIC or completed internships in its members' companies. He looks forward to joining hand with the OUHK to cultivate more industrial talents and promote industrial development in Hong Kong.

    The President of HKYIC Foundation Dr Shi Lop-tak hoped that the students who participated in the programme could learn more about industrial development through the opportunity, and consider joining the industrial sector after graduation.

    There are eight OUHK students joining the Internship Programme this year. They will receive pre-internship training offered by OUHK, at which interview skills and essential knowledge about business communication etiquette will be given. To gain a better understanding on workplace culture, students will visit the companies’ Guangdong branches before starting their internship in Vietnam.

    Soon after arriving in Vietnam, students will be assigned to different departments such as human resources, production and technical development, as well as marketing to accumulate broader work experience. In the process, students will get to know the trend of industrial development in Southeast Asia. Upon completion of the programme, students are required to submit a report providing concrete recommendations on how to promote Hong Kong's industrial development and training for more industrial talents, based on the work experience gained and observation during their internship.
