• New Colombo Mobility Program

    Launched in 2014, the New Colombo Plan is a flagship Australian Government initiative providing new opportunities for Australian undergraduate students to study and undertake internships and mentorships in the Indo-Pacific. It aims to lift knowledge of the region in Australia, build leadership skills, and foster people-to-people and institutional relationships.

    In 2017 collaboration between Huawei Australia and Australian Technology Network of Universities (ATN) will see 30 students annually hosted at the Beijing Language Cultural University and Huawei’s office in Shenzhen on a three-week immersion program under the New Colombo Mobility Scheme.
