Increased focus on industrial policies like Made in China 2025 is a critical piece in China’s economic strategy, and as such is constantly being discussed across social media – in both English and Chinese.

Interns will collect and analyze data and information, compiling them into a weekly report. The internship is a great opportunity for those with strong Chinese language and social media skills to understand such a pivotal part of China’s economic policy.
