About: China is currently the second largest market for U.S. agriculture and Shanghai holds China’s largest consumer base with rapidly rising incomes. Therefore, Shanghai is the focus of many trade groups interested in exploring the China market. Since China is a country with a wide range of development and incomes, it is still a challenging market. ATO Shanghai acts as a bridge in introducing American companies to Chinese culture and business practices and identifying market opportunities. China now has the highest number of internet users in the world, so interns in this office have a great responsibility in helping develop and maintain internet programs to reach both Chinese industry groups and consumers with information about products.

Intern responsibilities: The IIP interns will have the opportunity to observe first-hand the rapid growth of China’s economy and will contribute to developing web-based market development tools. Duties may include maintenance of the USDA China website, along with its Twitter page, Flickr account, and Turduo video account; providing guidance and editing market development reports drafted by non-native English speakers; assistance in coordinating visits by U.S. Governor teams and trade associations; assistance in briefing visiting Congressional and trade delegations; assistance with market development projects including trade seminars, lifestyle media events, menu promotions, chef training seminars, and retail promotions. 

Qualifications: Basic Mandarin is preferred, but not absolutely necessary.
