The North Asia Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence (North Asia CAPE) has partnered with GlobaLink Internships to offer 12 students and young professionals the opportunity to undertake a virtual tour of Shanghai.
Over three weeks (approximately five hours per week), students will: meet leading food & beverage businesses and government agencies; tour supermarkets and logistics centres; and gain insights into Shanghai’s F&B supply chains. These interactions will happen virtually on Zoom or a similar platform.
In advance of the virtual tour, North Asia CAPE will bring the successful applicants together for a one-day, in-person orientation event in Auckland. The event will feature presentations from government representatives and academics, and give applicants the chance to meet each other and prepare for the virtual tour ahead.
North Asia CAPE will pay for successful applicants to attend the one-day orientation event (including domestic flights to Auckland if they live in another New Zealand city), and provide the virtual tour experience. There may also be opportunities to network further following the conclusion of the tour.
In the wake of the global pandemic and shutdown of most international travel, the virtual tour of Shanghai will enable successful applicants to gain valuable in-market relationships, insights, and sectoral knowledge, bolstering them in their academic and professional endeavours.
