Asia Briefing Editorial Internship- Shanghai

I am currently in Shanghai for a 6-month editorial internship with Asia Briefing. Asia Briefing is a business and regulatory news publication focused on China, India, and the ASEAN countries. As an editorial intern, I research and write 3-5 articles each week related to business and regulatory developments in this region of the world. We have several publishing platforms, including Asia Briefing, India Briefing, Vietnam Briefing, and ASEAN Briefing.

Asia Briefing is a Dezan Shira & Associates Group Company. Dezan Shira provides foreign direct investment consultancy for companies looking to do business in Asia.

I have already had the opportunity to research many interesting topics and publish several articles. Here are some pieces I contributed to this month:

India-China Relations Strengthened Through Investment Agreements

Economic Advisory Council’s Review of the Indian Economy

Tax Amendments Receive Approval in India

People’s Bank of China to Facilitate RMB Exchange in London

Update: I am now 4 months into my internship and am having a great time! I was promoted to Senior Editorial Intern, a role that gives me more responsibility on longer-term projects and the opportunity to advise our new interns. I have continued to published articles each week and have even had some syndicated by other financial news providers.
