MyASEAN Internship

Background & Objective

TalentCorp’s MyASEAN Internship was launched in January 2015 by YB Dato’ Sri Mustapa Mohamed, the Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI) against the backdrop of Malaysia’s Chairmanship of ASEAN. The programme was created to raise awareness of ASEAN and the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) among Malaysian youth.

Since then, MyASEAN Internship has placed over 100 top ASEAN talents in companies across the region. By 2016, the programme doubled in size with 25 participating employers, a 108% increase from its inaugural year and more internship spots were offered with regional placements in cities such as Bangkok, Hanoi, Jakarta, Phnom Penh and Kuala Lumpur.   

MyASEAN Internship has reached tremendous heights with the support of MITI, and it is aspired to grow beyond Malaysian borders.
