The Chinese mainland will provide around 600 internships in various industries for young Taiwanese in the coming months, a spokesperson in Beijing said Wednesday.

"Many government offices and enterprises across the country have introduced their summer internship programs for Taiwanese youth," said Ma Xiaoguang, spokesperson with the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, at a press conference.

Ma also pointed out that in east China's Shanghai City and Fujian Province, local governments had each issued over 50 preferential policies covering sectors including education, employment, job security, and medical services, for Taiwanese living in those regions.

"Taiwanese need only to pass the law and regulation exams to be securities, futures, or fund practitioners if they had already obtained qualifications in Taiwan," said Ma.

Taiwanese companies will also enjoy preferential policies including market access, financial services, fund support and customs clearance, he added.
