Hong Kong: CASBAA and China Great Wall Industry Corporation (CGWIC) of China have announced the creation of the CGWIC-CASBAA Internship Programme.
With seed funding from CGWIC, CASBAA will offer internship opportunities in support of international university students specialising in communications, legal/regulatory and international relations.
Participants will be engaged in hands-on support for CASBAA’s mission to “Inform, Represent and Connect” the multichannel TV industry across Asia.
“The development of human capital for the continued growth of the pay television industry is vitally important and we are delighted that CGWIC is providing support for this initiative,” said Marcel Fenez, Chairman of CASBAA.
The internships will be offered seasonally to qualified applicants initially working at the CASBAA headquarters in Hong Kong or at participating member companies’ locations.
The internship opportunities will be posted on the CASBAA website and further announced through general CASBAA communications.
Yin Li Ming, President of satellite launch specialist CGWIC, commented: “CGWIC is pleased to provide the ‘seed stage’ funding for this important programme. Identifying talented youngsters throughout the Asia Pacific and providing them with important professional experience will help to grow a healthy and collaborative culture throughout the cable and satellite community. We sincerely hope other CASBAA member firms will join us in expanding this program throughout our industry in Asia and beyond.”
