During the past two decades, the growth of emerging markets in Asia—driven largely by China and India—represents the most dramatic cultural, demographic and economic shift the world has ever seen. Since the turn of the millennium, China and its 1.3 billion citizens have seen GDP increase by 700%. By almost every credible estimate, the People's Republic will soon become the world's largest economy.
Meanwhile, hundreds of millions have been brought out of crushing poverty and given a chance at a richer, fuller life. The stunning growth in the region has not been confined to the Middle Kingdom. The nations of Taiwan, Vietnam, Singapore, South Korea and Indonesia are also on a torrid pace, one where products like Hyundai, Samsung, HTC and Singapore Air have become global household names.
The populations of these countries become more educated, inspired and thirsty for opportunity by the minute. They possess an irresistible optimism and a desire to change the world for the better.
Many Asian nations are excited about demonstrating their economic and cultural clout on the world stage, driving an openness to doing business abroad and a passion for receiving and working with foreign professionals.
Coupled with the rise of social media and lightning speed innovation in communication technology, Asia and the West are more connected than ever before. To those with the right skills, the depth and variety of professional opportunities is unprecedented.
Hands-on experience in China and the Far East offers the promise of developing invaluable skills and gaining exposure to some of the world's most rapidly advancing, innovative businesses. It also provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for immersion in a tradition-rich foreign culture.
In 2014, Internships In Asia signed an exclusive partnership with the United States of America-China Chamber of Commerce to bring internships and educational opportunities to Westerners with an interest in living and working in China.
The USCCC was founded in 1993 by a group of Chinese and American businessmen led by Prescott S. Bush, Jr., brother of former U.S. President George H.W. Bush.
The organization conducts a wide range of activities such as seminars, conferences, workshops, executive briefings, trade missions and networking events, which collectively aim to facilitate a deeper understanding of the technological, economic, financial, demographic and cultural trends that are critical for successful economic development between the U.S. and China.
Internships In Asia works with the USCCC and its more than 250 member institutions to find professional opportunities in a range of industries.
The work of Internships In Asia grew out of our sister organization, the Atlanta-Latin America Scholarship. Starting and operating this 501(c)(3) non-profit taught us the importance of putting principles before profits and emphasizing a mission of empowering leaders, inspiring cultural tolerance and advocating for cooperative problem solving. The Internships In Asia founders are passionate about building international bridges and contributing little by little to a more secure, prosperous and interconnected world.
